Solutions for people in Northern France who want to seek asylum in the UK

September 22, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“Join the conversation on alternative solutions to the situation at the UK-France border.

IMIX invites you to a panel discussion on what potential processes could help to resolve the situation for prospective asylum seekers on the UK’s doorstep.

In light of a potential, new bilateral agreement between the UK and France on channel crossings, border security and returns, we are faced with a critical risk that individuals’ access to the UK asylum system will be further hampered through new arrangements which could allow for interceptions and / or swift returns to France.

The prospects for the individuals trapped in northern France are bleak and we believe that there is a need for a strong and concerted civil society voice advocating for alternative solutions to the situation at the UK-France border. We hope you will join this online panel and share your thoughts.

Our expert speakers include:

Marta Welander, Executive Director, Refugee Rights Europe

Claude Moraes former MEP, former Chair of the European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs

Zoe Gardner, Policy Advisor, JCWI

A young leader from the Hummingbird Project

With expert input from partner organisations in France.
