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."

MSF official statement

Once again in this type of situation, there is a lot of confusion introduced, whether deliberately or through a lack of correct information, between the role of the states that have ratified the statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the United Nations, and the activities of independent humanitarian organizations such as Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
