Youth Policy Watch - Human Rights and Migrations

04/07/2016

Observing YEU philosophy, the topic of Human Rights and migrations are definatelly included within the organization's. During the past month, there was some important decisions, which YEU is keeping its' focus on and will be following the procedures and outcomes. If necessary, it will also advocate and work in order to achieve redefining directions and decitions which are against our values and believes.

Starting, on the process to prevent radicalisation, the European Commission (EC) issued a new Communication, which it was presented on the 14th of June 2016. This  document presents new indicating ways to prevent radicalisation which leads to violent extremism and terrorism. Based on the topic and also the approach, YEU salutes the action and highlights the need to work more on the topic as it affects each and one of us, young people and future generations. This document also highlights the goals of YEU on combating hate speech and teaching media literacy, empowering civil society, working with communities, supporting educators and educational institutions, youth work and promoting common values and inclusive education. At the same time you can read the EUCIS-LLL (Platform that YEU is a full member)  position paper on Education to Foster Intercultural Understanding and Solidarity and the position of YFJ which reflect on the topic.Additionally, in relevance to the overall topic, you can read the position of YFJ on Political youth debate unemployment and extremism.

At the same time, European Council presented new policies to contain migration. However, this process was not well accepted by everybody. Looking back at the European Council of 28-29 June 2016, NGOs address the concerns and issues raising from policies that target migration. Observing the talks on Refugee crisis and migration within EU, it is strongly visible that EU is trying to monitor the situation based on Member States’ ideas and fears, however as proven with lack of understanding, solidarity and collaboration with civil society. Observing the press release shared by European Commision, it is clear that “controlling migration” is a priority. However at which cost? As Civil-society-organizations/NGOs are following up the discussion and policy development, it is clear that coopation and collaboration is needed more than ever to have a greater impact. Therefore, a variety of organizations have moved to a Joint NGO statement ahead of the European Council in end of June, where they are strongly condemn new EU policies to contain migration.
