Amnesty International is calling on EU leaders to provide safe and legal routes for refugees travelling into Europe. Iverna McGowan, acting director of the NGO’s EU institutions office, tells viEUws a Commission plan to resettle 120,000 refugees across the continent does far too little to address the current crisis. She also says the EU should give women migrants facing sexual violence special status, as stated in international law.
On 11-12 November 2015, will be convened an international summit to discuss migration issues with African and other key countries concerned. What is at stake? Tim Allan, S&D Group Press Officer has the answers.
