EU migration overhaul stresses fast-track deportations and limited appeal rights for asylum seekers

Professor Nick Micinski on a grey background

Nicholas R. Micinski for The Conversation ("EU migration overhaul stresses fast-track deportations and limited appeal rights for asylum seekers") analyzes the proposed European Union  asylum and migration reforms that focus on securing borders and making it easier to deport people, with, in his view, little protection for migrants and asylum seekers.  The piece begins:

"The European Parliament adopted its Pact on Migration and Asylum on April 10, 2024, clearing a major hurdle on its way to becoming European Union law. The package of regulations and directives seeks to update EU policies on migrants and refugees.

The pact is a legacy of the 2015 migration crisis when EU countries saw more than 1 million people claim asylum after arriving, mainly by boat, to European countries. The majority were fleeing violence and war in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq."
