New publication by Prof Michelle Pace “Denmark’s immigrants forced out by government policies” at Chatham House

New publication by Prof Michelle Pace “Denmark’s immigrants forced out by government policies” at Chatham House

Professor Michelle Pace, Associate Fellow, Europe Programme at Chatham House, published a new article entitled “Denmark’s immigrants forced out by government policies: Relocating asylum seekers outside Europe is just the latest extreme measure from Denmark’s Social Democrats”.

Details:

A new law enabling Denmark to deport asylum seekers outside Europe while applications are being processed is the latest in a series of extraordinary and extreme measures targeting immigrants from a government going far beyond those taken by other European countries and the European Union (EU).

Under the new law, proposed by Social Democratic prime minister Mette Frederiksen and comfortably passed by Denmark’s parliament the Folketing in a vote of 70 to 24, asylum seekers would be flown to a faraway third country regardless of where they are from – with one option appearing to be Rwanda which signed a diplomatic agreement in March with Denmark leading to speculation it intends to open an asylum processing facility there.

It remains unclear how any external ‘reception centre’ could be administered, and notably whether it would be under Danish or the third country’s jurisdiction. But either way, Denmark still has a legal responsibility to ensure the rights of people transferred to such a camp are protected, not violated.
