Crise des réfugiés ukrainiens versus méditerranéens

Des politiques en crise ou des promesses dans la question migratoire ?

Abstract

The war in Ukraine has provoked an unprecedented humanitarian surge. The various actors: governments, NGOs, associations, civil societies are organizing themselves to offer assistance to Ukrainian refugees. The European Union is applying a 2001 directive, which allows for the granting of temporary protection status in order to guarantee rapid access to rights: right of residence, access to work, to healthcare, to housing, education... to a stay in decent and safe conditions. These exceptional conditions granted to refugees contrast with the conditions of Mediterranean refugees. It is in this context that the United Nations human rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, welcomes this humanitarian solidarity but also recalls that other migrants and refugees are often faced with refoulement and criminalization at the EU's borders and beyond.

Presentation

The war in Ukraine has provoked an unprecedented humanitarian surge. The various actors: governments, NGOs, associations, civil societies are organizing themselves to offer assistance to Ukrainian refugees. The European Union is applying a 2001 directive, which allows for the granting of temporary protection status in order to guarantee rapid access to rights: right of residence, access to work, access to healthcare, access to housing, education... access to a stay in decent and safe conditions.

These exceptional conditions granted to refugees contrast with the conditions of Mediterranean refugees. It is in this context that the United Nations human rights chief, Michelle Bachelet, welcomes this humanitarian solidarity but also recalls that other migrants and refugees are often faced with refoulement and criminalization at the EU's borders and beyond.

Media and political speeches have fueled the subject, but behind these controversial speeches, these media polemics, what does this Ukrainian crisis reveal about the migration issue?  

The objective of this conference is to try to address this issue, to understand why the application of the 2001 mechanism was only activated with this crisis? What are the difficulties of its implementation? Could this system be sustainable and concern all refugees? Could this humanitarian impulse, which has given rise to controversy, be indicative of a dysfunction, a lack of respect for human rights or a promise of better treatment of refugees in Europe?

The research laboratory "Face à face" is organizing a seminar to provide some answers to these questions.
