Exploring the EU’s migration challenges

On 27 September, FRA took part in an international conference on migration challenges in the EU.

The Hungarian Scientific Association of Law Enforcement Studies in Budapest organised the event. It was mainly attended by practitioners working in the field of immigration and aliens policing.

FRA highlighted the unresolved issues of people dying in an attempt to reach Europe drawing on its paper on preventing and responding to deaths at sea. It also outlined the persistent fundamental rights challenges at the EU’s external land and sea borders.

FRA presented its work on integration – including its recent report on long-term residents – and on preventing, and responding to, labour exploitation.

FRA shared copies of the Hungarian version of the handbook on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration and of the pocket guide for border guards.
