Speech delivered by Dr. Joanne Liu, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) International President

International humanitarian law is not about "mistakes." It is about intention, facts, and why.

Across Europe, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are seeing first-hand the failure of current policies that are leading to the suffering, and even deaths, of people fleeing some of the worst humanitarian crises of our time. In an open letter being published in newspapers across Europe, and being delivered today to all EU delegations in Brussels ahead of a major ministerial meeting on the issue this week, MSF calls for a radical rethink of current approaches to asylum-seekers and an end to the strategy of "deterrence."
