The number of displaced persons around the world in recent years is comparable only to figures seen at the end of the Second World War. Increased levels of migration into to the European Union has caused a severe crisis in the field of refugee and migration policies. The European Union risks jeopardising the founding principles commonly agreed on and written in the EU Treaties, which include the Charter of Fundamental Rights and compliance with international public law.
In this context, the Green European Foundation strives to foster the dialogue between the relevant Green actors in order to build common proposals for alternative refugee, asylum and migration policies. It also focuses on the situation at the local level across Europe, fostering exchanges of ideas and best practices between activists.
