23/06/2022 | 16:04:49 Thank you, Miste President. Dear Colleagues, I am pleased that the Assembly has immediately placed this crucial issue of asylum on its agenda. In April, the British authorities announced that illegally arrived migrants would be relocated to Rwanda, claiming that relocation would facilitate safe and legal asylum channels and that Rwanda is able to accommodate tens of thousands of people. We believe that this practice contradicts the right to asylum. There is a serious risk that the principle... 22/06/2022 | 16:54:03 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, I would like to thank the rapporteur for his brilliant work on this sensitive but largely ignored subject. This Assembly has adopted several reports on migrant and refugee children and has worked on different aspects of the issue in recent years. The current Russian aggression against Ukraine has once again revealed that children are among the most vulnerable groups in migration and need immediate care and protection. Contrary to our previous... 27/04/2022 | 11:53:40 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, One of the important aspects of this war, which we are witnessing in other crises, is the humanitarian consequences.

As a member of the Committee on Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons and rapporteur on missing migrant and refugee children in Europe, I would like to draw your attention to the children affected... 24/01/2022 | 19:18:07 Good evening, dear President, dear colleagues, I would like to thank the rapporteur for his work on this extremely important issue, the new European Pact on Migration and Asylum, which will replace the current EU migration regime. Unfortunately, we have seen so many cases of human rights violations against asylum seekers and refugees in recent years. There have been so many horrific moments, including refoulements in the Mediterranean and, on land, attacks on refugees, seizure of their...
