ESIL Session on Refugees Results in an International Petition

After the panel debate on The Refugee Crisis: The European Response at the ESIL Conference, international lawyers initiated an open letter. They condemn the failure to offer protection to people seeking refuge in Europe, and the lack of respect for the human rights of those seeking refuge.

The letter is addressed to the peoples of Europe, the European Union, EU Member-States and their representatives on the Justice and Home Affairs Council.

It was signed by 674 international lawyers. Read the letter (pdf).
