There is a growing atmosphere of resentment directed at migrants and refugees: Asylum laws are being tightened, the European Union (EU) continuously attempts to seal external borders. Sick, traumatised or pregnant people are frequently deported.Many refugees experience ever stricter asylum laws and racial discrimination, even from medical personnel, leading to a denial of their right to healthcare. These violations of the human right to health endanger these vulnerable people unacceptably.

  • Access to health care
  • Consequences of living standards in mass accommodation on mental and physical health
  • Residence status, deportation and health
  • Criminalisation civil humanitarian assistance
  • Germany‘s responsibility regarding the European policy of sealing external borders
