EU-kommissionen 18-07-24:

Commission expands on disembarkation and controlled centre concepts till sidans topp

Following the call by EU leaders at the June European Council, the Commission is today expanding on the concept of controlled centres as well as short-term measures that could be taken to improve the processing of migrants being disembarked in the EU, and giving a first outline of the possible way forward for the establishment of regional disembarkation arrangements with third countries. Regional disembarkation arrangements should be seen as working in concert with the development of controlled centres in the EU: together, both concepts should help ensure a truly shared regional responsibility in responding to complex migration challenges.

'Controlled Centres' in the EU

To improve the orderly and effective processing of those disembarked in the European Union, EU leaders have called for the establishment of 'controlled centres' in the EU. The primary aim would be to improve the process of distinguishing between individuals in need of international protection, and irregular migrants with no right to remain in the EU, while speeding up returns. The centres would be managed by the host Member State with full support from the EU and EU Agencies and could have a temporary or ad-hoc nature depending on the location.

Regional Disembarkation Arrangements

In addition to the establishment of controlled centres, EU leaders have called on the Commission to explore the concept of regional disembarkation arrangements in close cooperation with IOM and UNHCR and in partnership with third countries. The objective of regional disembarkation arrangements is to provide quick and safe disembarkation on both sides of the Mediterranean Sea of rescued people in line with international law, including the principle of non-refoulement, and a responsible post-disembarkation process.

Both concepts follow the model of the "hotspots" in Italy and on the Greek islands till sidans topp

The European Commission has published two "Non-Papers" on disembarkation points outside the EU in north Africa and "controlled centres" inside the EU:

"Following the call by EU leaders at the June European Council, the Commission is today expanding on the concept of controlled centres as well as short-term measures that could be taken to improve the processing of migrants being disembarked in the EU, and giving a first outline of the possible way forward for the establishment of regional disembarkation arrangements with third countries. Regional disembarkation arrangements should be seen as working in concert with the development of controlled centres in the EU: together, both concepts should help ensure a truly shared regional responsibility in responding to complex migration challenges."

Controlled centres (camps?)

"The primary aim would be to improve the process of distinguishing between individuals in need of international protection, and irregular migrants with no right to remain in the EU, while speeding up returns. The centres would be managed by the host Member State with full support from the EU and EU Agencies and could have a temporary or ad-hoc nature depending on the location."

These centres could be temporary or they could become more permanent "hotspots" with an "ad hoc nature".

Disembarkation centres (camps?)

"the concept of regional disembarkation arrangements in close cooperation with IOM and UNHCR and in partnership with third countries.

EU: New migration plans "dangerous and self-serving" till sidans topp

European Union (EU) leaders have chosen fear over compassion by signing off Council Conclusions which could harm some of the world's most vulnerable men, women and children, Amnesty International said today.

The political agreement issued today details new migration proposals which include plans for "controlled centres" for asylum seekers and migrants in EU states, and "regional disembarkation platforms" to disembark those rescued at sea outside Europe.

"After days of bickering, EU leaders have signed off a raft of dangerous and self-serving policies which could expose men, women and children to serious abuses," said Iverna McGowan, Director of Amnesty International's European Institutions Office.

"This week's Summit was a chance to fix Europe's broken asylum system and create policies based on fairness, effectiveness and compassion. Instead EU leaders have chosen to pander to xenophobic governments who are hellbent on keeping Europe closed, and to push even more responsibility onto countries outside the EU.

"Plans to confine people who do reach Europe's shores to "controlled" centres are alarming. This is a flimsy euphemism - EU leaders are moving towards a policy of detaining people who come to Europe seeking safety. This policy would be a far cry from the EU's founding principles of solidarity and respect for human rights."

The Council also failed to adopt any decisive measures to deal with the appalling human rights violations refugees and migrants suffer in Libya, including as a result of the EU's own support to Libyan authorities. The EU-supported Libyan Coastguard is intercepting an increasing number of people at sea and returning them to detention centres where they suffer torture, exploitation and rape.

The number of people arbitrarily detained in such centres has recently grown to about 9,000.
