SESSION 3 : VISA APPLICATIONS- borders and migration


The movement of people has featured throughout human history;The adverse effect on health of both the violent policing of borders, and the exclusion of vulnerable groups once they have crossed such borders, is a matter of grave global health significance. Europe's ongoing refugee crisis and the under-reported injustices endured by other crisis-affected communities worldwide, are indicative of a system of global governance that does not place equal value on human life. In a world in which capital and commodities flow more freely than compassion and humanity, a fundamental friction exists between the expression of solidarity and the protection and promotion of sovereign interests.

Most countries, have strict requirement for people ho ant to move there. They only give a certain number of people permission to come, so they often have a system to decide ho to choose.

I Think that this problem should be analyzed on some aspects; for example : evaluate why some people decide to leave their country of origin, if they have a family in their country, what job they can do, their education and school level, and how hold they are.

If i work for the Visa office applications, I would to choose who has obtained excellent work and study results to improve the performance of some sectors in my country taking advantage of the skills of the subject in question. But, i would to choose also who haven't particular job skills and just want to improve his living conditions.

The best way to ensure that refugees do not jump dangerously from one European country to another is not to build enclosure walls, which encourages more dangerous forms of human trafficking, but to ensure that the management of asylum applications is high level throughout Europe, granting refugees the same rights.

My favorite sentence was given by one of the refugees, a less fortunate boy with a closed future: "I am not dangerous, I am in danger".

    Your experience of refugees in Sicily makes this part of migration especially important to discuss.

    Refugees around the world are the equivalent of about 10% of the number of people who are living in countries they weren't born in. This means the vast majority of people in different countries are not refugees.

    Considering those economic migrants who want to move to work in another country, why do countries often have strict rules about the numbers who can come to work?

    The European Commission has issued three Immigration Directives:
    Acting on migratory pressure, through aid to countries of origin; migration thus becomes an integral element of the European Union's foreign policy;
    Control flows by means of monitoring, of common measures against illegal immigration, of an equal attitude in relation to political asylum, of a uniformity of criteria for the reunification of families;
    Strengthen integration policies for legal immigrants. could be said that the rich western countries possess much, too much, and are obliged to renounce something in favor of those who have a tenth, a hundredth of us. It could be remembered that a European also consumes ten times more resources on the planet than an African. In short, some sacrifices would be necessary if we wanted to accept our responsibilities as human beings.
    I believe it is fundamental to look at the phenomenon of migration in a new way, emerging from the vision of an emergency that overwhelms the West. It is necessary to think of new, more far-sighted interventions that can respond intelligently and openly to the challenges of this historic moment. The future approach should be one of positive cooperation with migrants, eliminating the perception that the Western world is handling a catastrophic event from which it is overwhelmed.
    I believe that it is essential to never lose sight of the importance of protecting human rights, especially in the area of ​​migration. Unfortunately, migrants' rights are often violated, in the country of origin as well as during the trip, but also in the countries of arrival. I therefore believe that it is the duty of the host countries to find forms of solidarity that guarantee the protection of fundamental human rights.
