ESI's Gerald Knaus was invited to give the keynote lecture on the future of European asylum and migration policy at the bi-annual Sustain Conference in Bremen.

He argued that a humane policy must aim for zero deaths at sea. It must ensure that all those rescued by European boats have access to a fair, effective asylum procedure. It must ensure that nobody who is intercepted by the Libyan coast guard ends up in inhumane detention centers. And it must protect those in need of protection from being pushed back into danger in their home countries. And a migration policy that can win majority support must offer meaningful control over irregular migration and residence.
