On 19 September 2016 Heads of State and leaders from Governments all over the world will gather in New York on the occasion of the UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants “to come up with a blueprint for a better international response” to the ever increasing movements of people across the globe.

The European Union, torn between the values of respect of human rights and dignity, on which it was established sixty years ago, and its fears makes no exception.
