Jesuit Refugee Service calls for greater protection of refugees

March 08, 2017

Father José Ignacio Garcia, SJ, director of Jesuit Refugee Service Europe, lamented the “trend of dismantling safeguards to protect refugees” in Europe.

In a recent working paper, Jesuit Refugee Service Europe offered five suggestions:

  • “stop outsourcing refugee protection responsibilities”
  • “design a system that is fairer to refugees”
  • “demonstrate greater solidarity to EU States who take in more refugees”
  • “prioritize social inclusion of refugees”
  • “eliminate disproportionate and excessive use of detention”
