Please find below reference to a new briefing paper Amnesty International published today, that we hope will be of interest.
Amnesty International, The human rights risks of external migration policies, 13 June 2017
The briefing paper sets out the main human rights risks linked to external migration policies, which are a broad spectrum of actions implemented outside of the territory of the state that people are trying to enter, usually through enhanced cooperation with other countries. From the perspective of international law, external migration policies are not necessarily unlawful. However, Amnesty International considers that several types of external migration policies, and particularly the externalization of border control and asylum-processing, pose significant human rights risks.
This document is intended as a guide for advocates and policy-makers working on the issue, and includes some examples drawn from Amnesty Internationalís research in different countries.
