In this short film BVMN explore the problems associated with the European Unions ‘New Pact on Migration and Asylum’, including the proposed increased use of detention, the time limits proposed for the pre-screening process, and the gaps that remain in the supposed ‘independent monitoring mechanism’. This release comes after the publication in November of a policy analysis on the New Pact (available below) which focused on the problematic pre-screening procedures that would be imposed. Since then, Milena Zajovic – the head of BVMNs Advocacy team and representative of network-member Are You Syrious?, has offered further insights on the pact in a webinar organised by the Left Group of the European Parliament – GUE/NGL. Thank you to network-members Are You Syrious? and No Name Kitchen for the footage, and to Broga Doite Film for the production of this short film.
