ESI’s Gerald Knaus was invited to participate in the expert workshop “A Fresh Start? Review of the German Presidency and Analysis of the EU Asylum and Migration Pact”, organised by Forced Migration and Refugee Studies: Networking and Knowledge Transfer (FFVT) and the Centre for Human Rights Erlangen-Nuremberg (CHREN). Gerald presented ESI’s ideas and policy recommendations on the new EU Pact on Migration and Asylum, addressing push-backs from EU member states, the current situation of refugees, the cooperation needed between EU member states, as well as the urgent steps that need to be taken on the Greek Islands, and a renewal of the EU-Turkey statement.
