John Dalhuisen quotes

Hungary is effectively transforming itself into a refugee protection zone, with blatant disregard for its human rights obligations and the obvious need to work with other EU and Balkan countries to find collective, humane solutions to the current crisis.feedback

This situation is simply untenable – countries in Europe's borderlands are facing an unprecedented flow of migrants and asylum-seekers, but passing them from pillar to post is not a solution and does not absolve countries like Hungary and Serbia of their legal obligations.feedback

This new tragedy realises our worst fears about the end of Italy's Mare Nostrum search-and-rescue operation and exposes the predictable consequences of the European Union's failure to provide an adequate replacement. The humanitarian crisis that sparked the need for Mare Nostrum has not gone away. With people continuing to flee war and persecution, EU member states must stop burying their heads in the sand whilst hundreds keep dying at sea.feedback

It's a simple equation – as the number of people taking this perilous sea route goes up and the resources put into search and rescue go down, more people will die.feedback

The people carrying out these push-backs are state agents. As such, the Greek authorities bear full responsibility for their actions. The authorities must openly acknowledge and ensure an end to the illegal and often dangerous practice of push-backs.feedback

The treatment of refugees and migrants at Greece's borders is deplorable. Too often, instead of finding sanctuary, they are met with violence and intimidation. There are cases where they have been stripped naked, had their possessions stolen, and even held at gunpoint before being pushed back across the border to Turkey.feedback

Attempting to monitor the human rights situation in Crimea has become a near impossible task.feedback

They represent a sorry attempt by the government to bolster its popularity by pandering to the most reactionary elements of Russian society – at the expense of fundamental rights and the expression of individual identities.feedback

The authorities are caught between needing to give some oxygen to this protest movement and having rights that need to be respected and the desire to show that they are still fundamentally the authorities in control and nothing is for changing.feedback
