Greece: Pushback witnessed off Lesvos

More needs to be done for inclusion

Migration Ministry renamed

Provisional agreements

Belgium: One person dies on highway

Italy: Mineo camp closed

Sea: Higher fees for sea rescue

Hungary: Analysis on legal changes

Libya: 350 people leave Tajoura centre

To be clear: the word “released” in a Libyan detention centre context can mean being kicked out in the middle of a war zone with no protection, no money, & no help. It’s always necessarily to investigate further.

France: Field report from Calais and Dunkirk

“The living conditions for them in France serve only to add to their accumulated trauma.”

Denmark: 19000 Euro for leaving the country
