Human Rights Violations at the Polish and Lithuanian EU External Borders with Belarus
This ASILE Project Webinar examines what is happening at the Schengen external borders between Poland and Lithuania and Belarus regarding refugees and migrants.
It aims to reflect on what could be the main responses by European institutions to the documented cases of push backs, degrading and inhuman treatment and loss of lives of people on the move.
The webinar investigates the incompatibility of these border malpractices with existing EU and international refugee and human rights standards, as well as the United Nations Global Compacts on Refugees and Migrants.
The event falls within the scope of the ASILE Project (project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870787), and it is jointly organised with the office of MEP Tineke Strik.
