‘Towards a humane refugee policy for the EU’ is a passionate and reasoned reflection on the state of the EU’s migration and asylum policy. The author, Gesine Schwan, argues that the EU’s approach to asylum and migration is failing because it is contrary to the values that the Union proclaims. She also argues that a pragmatic and humane response to the challenges posed by the refugee protection crisis can be found in municipalities and their active civil society.
Gesine Schwan, with the collaboration of Marisa Zobel, outlines a clear and detailed proposal on how to engage municipalities and civil society initiatives in the relocation and reception of migrants and asylum seekers. The proposal will not be the only panacea for EU migration and refugee policy, because migration is a too complex phenomenon that needs to be tackled at many levels. Yet, the ideas and tools illustrated in the book would benefit both the hosting communities and the newcomers.
