Webinar addresses migrant border assistance

On 11 June, FRA contributed to a Red Cross Europe webinar on assisting migrants at borders.

FRA spoke during a panel alongside the UN Refugee Agency and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on the impact of EU border management on the needs of migrants.

FRA described the fundamental rights safeguards included in the Schengen Borders Code and the preventive measures EU Member States can take when cooperating with non-EU countries (see FRA guidance on non-refoulement).
