09 Dec PROJECT EU CITIZENSHIP
On November 27th Project EU Citizenship was in the In Limbo Embassy to share their vision with visitors and invite them to
question the current refugee policy in Europe.
Due to the Dublin Regulation, which is the main EU law determining Asylum procedure, the asylum claim of a refugee has to be examined by the EU country where the refugee first sets foot on EU soil. This means that most refugees have no choice but to undertake a dangerous journey to another territory, exposing themselves to exploitation and dangerous conditions.
Project EU Citizenship suggests an alternative route to citizenship, so Asylum seekers wouldn’t be forced to take this dangerous and illegal journey.
When sailing under the flag of a country, the rights of that country apply. The project proposes for European ships to come to refugees so they can apply directly in their country of preference without undertaking a dangerous journey. Each ship would have a different size, based on the absorption capacity of the country.
