Frontex: 10 true/false statements for a better understanding

International law establishes the right to mobility by declaring the right of anyone to leave any country, including their own, and to return to it.

It also protects anyone who is migrating, regardless of their status, against any form of ill-treatment and violation of their rights, including in case of return to “a third country” (non-refoulement principle).

Does the EU’s migration policy meet with these obligations? Is it in line with the current issues regarding international migration?

We propose to deconstruct these received ideas by answering “yes” or “no” to ten statements.

This is the third update of this leaflet (May, 2017) that allows a better understanding, in some pages, of the dangers of the Frontex agency and the European migration policies, which it embodies.
