French Election a Step for Justice for Refugees

Across the border, in a Catholic majority country, Croatia rose to the challenges of processing refugees passing through, at least during the “humanitarian corridor” from September 2015 to March 2016. And then the situation changed, according to sociologist Laura Heideman. “Humanitarian principles started to erode as the borders within Europe started closing, and in the past few months, there have been reports of asylum seekers being forcibly returned to Serbia.”

Heideman explains: “It’s a lot easier to provide short-term humanitarian aid to people only passing through than integrating people long term.”
