Project description

Ethics on refugee and migrant distinction

The arrival of millions of refugees and migrants to Europe in recent years and the attempt of countless others to reach Europe resulted in a high death toll. An agreement between the EU and Turkey permitted the return of a considerable number of migrants to Turkey. The EU distinguished between refugees and migrants as refugees are considered eligible for protection. The EU-funded Migration Ethics project will study the criteria used to select migrants eligible for protection. It will also examine how migrants are excluded from protection and determine whether this is ethically and legally acceptable.
