Youth Policy Watch - Migrations

16/06/2016

As YEU is a network that promotes exchanges and mobility, it is always important to observe discussions and the situation on policies developed on migration and related issues. It is clear that the topic is affecting local realities and youth work. Therefore, being updated is vital to be always updated and prepared to advocate and protect values that YEU stands for.

Starting, this year, the United Nations human rights boss decried a "worrying rise" in detention of migrants, in so-called "hotspots" in Greece and Italy and urged authorities to find alternatives to confining children while their asylum requests are processed. Parallel, in relevance to the topic of refugees and asylum seekers, a number of youth organisations have signed a statement (Statement of youth organizations: Investing in solutions for refuges/migrants and creating quality jobs for your people) highlighting solidarity and European values and the urgent need to act.

Furthermore to the topic, this semester a Consultation is taking place, fostered by an MEP through the Migration & Human Rights Network. The MEP Cecile Kashetu Kyenge (S&D, Italy) shared her interest in best practices of youth organisations in the inclusion of young refugees with a connection to anti-racism. YEU, will be collecting feedback to share during this process and all MOs will be asked to contribute.

At the same time, changes in EU are being applied, as European Parliament approved the Visa Directive for entry of third-country nationals for the purpose of research or study into the EU. This is a very important issue, related to the work that the network is executing and the relation it has to the issue of mobility and projects that MOs present. For many years, the European Youth Forum and its member organisations (within them YEU), have been campaigning for free movement within the EU for young people from non- EU countries. (FR)

Related to the overall topic, as we work for a common understanding and fostering intercultural dialogue, it is very important to mention that EU has proposed new steps against radicalisation. The Commissioner Navracsis stated that social and educational conditions are the "real causefor radicalisation.” In this process, the European Youth Forum, has stresses that vulnerable young people must not be blamed & stigmatised for violent radicalisation. For more information, take a look at the report “The Role of the Youth Sector in Preventing Violent Extremism.
