Humiliation at the EU's external borders

After war, persecution and trauma in their homeland, refugees experience kicks, beatings and humiliation at the EU’s external borders. Recent media reports document the renewed numerous illegal deportations from the EU at the Croatian-Bosnian border.

“The recent reports of violent push-backs are shocking to many, but just because this time they were captured on video. Around one third of all refugees who flee to the EU via the so called Balkan route come from Afghanistan and have experienced war, persecution and violence in their country. How can it be that these People, Families and women with infants in their arms, are being beaten out of the EU with batons? This violence is a failure of the local authorities, but also of the entire European Union. ” says a member organization of the alliance Aktion Deutschland Hilft.

According to the International Organization for Migration, there are currently around 4,000 refugees in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with at least 1,100 of them reportedly staying in unofficial shelters. The actual number of refugees is likely significantly higher. In 2020 alone, the Danish Refugee Council documented around 16,000 cases of illegal push-backs across the Croatian-Bosnian border.

"With the help of our partner organizations, we distribute food, hygiene kits and drinking water along the escape routes in Bihac and Tuzla, and provide safe shelter for vulnerable people for a short time. But this is barely enough to meet the most basic needs of a few refugees," reports a member organization.
