With such high levels of migration into Europe — the highest since World War II — there are many discussions about the need to create policies that put human rights at the center. So what do migration policies look like in practical terms?
In this video interview, Peter Van der Auweraert, head of the land, property and reparations division at the International Organization for Migration, told Devex about the need for actors across Europe to increase the legal avenues for migration.
In this clip, Van der Auweraert discusses the challenges around the reallocation of humanitarian and development assistance, resettlement policies, and the need to work with Syria’s neighboring countries to help alleviate the burden.
