Save the date: Webinar event on the Slovenian Presidency - 5th July 2021 at 11:00 CEST


Dear all,

The Slovenian presidency of the Council of the EU, which began this week, will strive in pushing the legislative agenda on the New Pact on Migration and Asylum and โ€œstrengthening the Schengen Areaโ€. In this light, it is important to reflect on the current state of migration and asylum policy in the presiding country, and the (mal)practice which Slovenia is seeking to entrench. Since 2018, Slovenia has been involved in massive and systemic denials of asylum rights and collective expulsion to Croatia. Network member InfoKolpa and the Border Violence Monitoring Network invite you to an online panel discussion addressing this situation on Monday 5th July 2021 at 11:00 CEST.

"SLOVENIA & CHAIN PUSHBACKS: A DISHONEST BROKER OF THE NEW PACT ON ASYLUM AND MIGRATION"

About the Event

How can a country responsible for mass violations of Human Rights be an honest broker in the preparations of the New Pact on Migration and Asylum? This webinar will discuss the the guise of legality used to initiate chain pushbacks from Slovenia, and the numerous reports and court judgements that have exposed the subsequent risks of torture during pushback from Croatia, as well as the inhuman conditions in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
