AEDH participates in the writing of the report "Calais, the violence of the border" - 4 May 2011
AEDH participated in the writing of the report "Calais, the violence of the border", issued by the EMHRN Network which details the results of a fact-finding mission to Calais and the surrounding area in order to investigate impacts of the police clamp down on the situation of migrants and refugees rights in the region.
The findings of the mission are that the destruction of “the Jungle” made the situation worse for the migrants, in terms of having their rights respected. In general, the closing down of unauthorised camps does not do away with people’s need to move. Instead, they worsen the human rights situation of those most in need of protection.
