MIGRANTS, REFUGEES AND HUMAN RIGHTS – RESOURCE BOOK,
BERLIN, NETWORK MIGRATION IN EUROPE, 2009


Netzwerk Migration in Europa e.V. developed the resource book “Migrants, Refugees and Human Rights” for NGOs, practitioners and students in the field of European Citizenship Education who require educational materials and want to learn about human rights and (forced) migration with a particular focus on the European Union.

This resource book gives an overview of the European and International legal framework and Human Rights laws concerning refugees and migrants. Further, it offers a policy glossary on immigration (SECTION I-III). It provides background information on basic facts, an overview and critical debates on European immigration and asylum policy and the new concept of „Circular Migration“ (SECTION IV). SECTION V informs about European research centres, initiatives and networks regarding migration and human rights.

The resource-book is intended to provide an introduction, background and perspective for those interested in understanding how European policy deals with migrants and refugees in light of the human rights protection. The resource materials are an outcome of workshops and seminars on “Learning for Human Rights and Democracy in Multicultural European Societies” with young professionals and students from European Countries.
