Porozumienie Unii Europejskiej z Turcją w sprawie migrantów a przestrzeganie zasady non-refoulement
The EU-Turkey Agreement and the Principle of Non-Refoulement
The article examines the European Union-Turkey agreement on migrants in the aspect of its compliance with the principle of non-refoulement. The EU has come under fire from many international institutions for failure to respect this principle and to solve the problem of refugees by other measures, such as providing legal and safe routes to Europe or making greater efforts in favour of resettlement. While the agreement might reduce the number of refugees arriving in Greece, the controversial problem of organised smuggling groups remains and those are likely to diversify the routes used for illegal crossings to Europe both by land and by sea. As the agreement does not even mention an establishment of legal migration channels for refugees, dangerous crossings into EU territory are likely to continue.
