Forget the ‘war on smuggling’, we need to be helping refugees in need 26.4.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
An Oxford academic argues that the Indochinese response to the Vietnamese boat people could provide a framework for a solution to the crisis in the Mediterranean The crisis in the Mediterranean, which has led to more than 1,700 deaths already this year, has evoked an immediate response from European political leaders . Yet the EU response fundamentally and wilfully misunderstands the underlying causes. It has focused increasingly on tackling smuggling networks, reinforcing border control and deportation. Somehow European politicians have managed to turn a human tragedy into an opportunity to further reinforce migration control policies, rather than engage in meaningful international cooperation to address the real causes of the ...

Migrant boat crisis: the story of the Greek hero on the beach 26.4.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
One compelling image has come to represent all the Greek people who treated desperate migrants like fellow human beings It was an image that has come to symbolise desperation and valour: the desperation of those who will take on the sea – and the men who ferry human cargo across it – to flee the ills that cannot keep them in their own countries.

Bishop of Manchester: I want leaders who look on migrants with compassion 26.4.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
Refugees do not come to sponge off our benefits system, but because they have been driven from their homes by conflict and persecution Briefly, last week, migration got a face, a human face. It’s not usually handled like that across much of the UK media, but the tragic plight of desperate families drowning in the attempt to cross the Mediterranean into Europe forced us out of our comfortable discourse about an amorphous “them”. Political rhetoric that characterises asylum seekers as wilful criminals is as unworthy as it is untrue The moral cost of our overseas interventions has to include accepting a fair share of the victims I want my country to be governed by those prepared to look at the faces of the desperate … with ...
