Europe: fortress or refuge?


The theme articles in this FMR challenge Europe’s leaders to ensure that development of a common European asylum policy focuses on tackling the root causes of forced migration and on providing protection and integration and not simply keeping asylum seekers out of Europe. As well as a range of general articles on Syria, Georgia, camp design, Nigeria and urban refugees, it also includes three feature articles on slow progress in providing protection and assistance in Darfur, the process of selecting the new head of UNHCR and an interview with Walter Kälin, the UN Secretary-General’s IDP representative.
