WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM TIME LIMIT TO BE DETAINED? #4

ONE EUROPE – DIFFERENT POLICIES – UNEQUAL RIGHTS FOR REFUGEES

WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM TIME LIMIT TO BE DETAINED?

More and more asylum seekers are closed in detention centres in the country they entered and are, consequently, deprived of their freedom of movement. Detention facilities raise several issues as human rights States are expected to protect are not always respected, in terms of the detention ground, living conditions and treatment of detained persons. In practice, we can see that the maximum duration of detention across Europe varies a lot depending on national legislation and range from 45 days up to 18 months [1].


ONE EUROPE – DIFFERENT POLICIES – UNEQUAL RIGHTS FOR REFUGEES campaign aims at revealing  the differences between refugees’ rights across Europe.

RISE (Refugees Ideas and Solution for Europe) is a refugee network operating across 14 countries in Europe. We represent the authentic voice of refugees all over Europe and want to contribute to a peaceful and creative coexistence in Europe and play a leading role in developing ideas for joint solutions. We designed the campaign ONE EUROPE – DIFFERENT POLICIES – UNEQUAL RIGHTS FOR REFUGEES based on consultations we held with refugee communities in 14 different European countries over a period of six months. All topics presented here were raised by the consultation groups and outline the biggest concerns refugees face and the needs to be addressed with priority.

Through a series of informative posters, the RISE network wants to draw attention to the worrisome situations refugees face but also to solutions and best practices that exist. It is worth mentioning that the content of each poster is related to States’ legal framework and the individual experience and perception of refugees, which can differ from one another.

The final event of this campaign will take place in Brussels on 20th of March to call for a fair and common asylum application in Europe as well as decent and common standards for all refugees. Furthermore we call the EU to stop trading refugees and signing inhuman migration deals. Sign and share this petition to support us!
