Migreurop seminar, Cecina 2008

Cecina (Italy) Friday, 18 July 10 am - 2 pm

The project of creating a « European Borders Observatory » aims at fostering non-governmental information on the situation of migrants at the borders, at denouncing violations of rights committed there, at promoting those rights, and thus improving the consideration for fundamental rights in the immigration policies of both transit and host countries.
