We want an EU leading a global regime on migration

We insist that the EU should lead and shape the negotiations for a global regime on migration and all its member states should contribute to this effort. Our Union must put all its weight behind the on-going UN negotiations to achieve global agreements on refugees and on safe, orderly and regular migration. Any agreement should be people-centred and should not only provide for long-term, sustainable and comprehensive solutions, for the benefit of all parties involved, but also build on the principle of partnership and strengthened cooperation among countries of origin, transit and destination. We deplore that the Trump administration has pulled the United States out of the United Nations’ ambitious plan to create a more humane and comprehensive global strategy on migration. The Trump strategy of simply building walls and walking away from constructive international efforts to deal with the real issues on migration does not provide solutions. Accurate and reliable data should be at the basis of all policy-making on migration. We should therefore not tolerate fake and/or speculative assertions that fuel false and harmful populist narratives. The picture is not black or white. Well regulated migration can contribute to the economic growth of receiving countries.
