EPIM Policy Update September 2020

EPIM Policy Updates are developed as a resource for organisations interested in European policy developments in the areas of migration and integration. The European Policy Centre (EPC), a Brussels-based think tank, has been commissioned by EPIM to produce these Policy Updates.

EPIM’s Policy Update addresses topics relevant to the following EPIM Thematic Funds: (1) Migration and Detention; (2) Reforming the Common European Asylum System; (3) Children and Youth on the Move, (4) Mobile EU Citizens’ Access to Rights, and (5) Building Inclusive European Societies.

This edition’s special focus discusses the renewed momentum in anti-racism efforts in Europe. Other key highlights of this Policy Update include:

• The need for urgent action after the devastating fires in the Moria camp;
• Pushbacks and violence at Europe´s borders;
• Increased calls for private refugee sponsorship;
• A closer look from the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland at promoting pathways to regularity.
