A call for humane EU return policies

Joint comments on the return directive's reform

Together with other faith-based organisations, Caritas Europa  provides comments on the European Commission proposal to reform the EU return directive in which we highlight our concerns related to the provisions on voluntary return, detention and the new border procedure.

Based on our previous joint Recommendations for humane return policies in Europe, we call on policy makers to support the necessary amendments to ensure that return can be carried out in full respect of fundamental rights and principles.
