IFRC policy on migration, The 10 migration principles

Working with and for vulnerable migrants is one of the long standing traditions of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. It is rooted in its Fundamental Principles and universal character as well as in its volunteer and community basis. However, patterns and issues associated with migration change over time. The Red Cross calls for a humanitarian asylum policy, which allows legal seekers to enter Europe. In statements, guest commentaries and press releases this requirement has always been expressed.
