AgriCulture and WTO: Free Trade Problems – Fair Trade Solutions

Towards a Real European Policy on Immigration and Asylum

For decades EU states have tried to reduce the number of immigrants - both asylum seekers and labour immigrants - to a minimum. They failed neglecting the fact that all migration is a natural phenomenon. We call for a fair regulation of migration into the EU which fully respects human rights.
