Over 20,000 migrants now trapped on Greek Islands

As the EU plans to set up ‘controlled centres’ for refugees and other migrants across Europe, the number of people trapped in deplorable conditions in EU ‘hotspots’ and other camps on the Greek islands has reached an unprecedented 20,110, according to Greek government figures.

New EU migration plans are recipe for failure

The EU's plans for 'controlled centers' for refugees and other migrants on European soil, as well as their proposed disembarkation arrangements in countries outside the EU for migrants rescued in the Mediterranean, are a recipe for failure.

Internal rows shape EU’s migration policy

European leaders at the EU summit in Brussels have failed to agree on reforms to the common European asylum system.

Oxfam argues that European agreements on migration are welcome, but they should not have a negative impact on the lives of refugees and migrants.
