Better protecting refugees in the EU and globally (UNHCR)

In this paper, UNHCR sets out a vision for achieving a pragmatic and common approach to responding to refugees and migrants. The proposals can facilitate the development, over the long term, of EU-wide arrangements to address and respond to movements effectively.

In this paper, UNHCR proposes an EU:

  • that is engaged beyond its borders to protect, assist and find solutions
  • that is prepared to respond to possible future arrivals in significant numbers
  • that protects through a well-managed common asylum system that ensures access to territory
  • that integrates refugees in their communities

Through this paper, UNHCR encourages creative and forward thinking in Europe, including EU Member States, but also countries of origin, refuge and transit.
