Excerpt

A Union Humanitarian Visa Framework built on both voluntary pledges and mutual financial support would constitute a feasible instrument for the broader protection of third-country nationals in fear of persecution. After highlighting the difference between humanitarian visas and other PEPs, the added value provided by a Union Humanitarian Visa Framework is laid out. Other assessments of the potential benefits of such a framework are further reviewed. Finally, the authors suggest how a European Commission proposal for a Union Humanitarian Visa Framework could be designed in line with the resolution adopted by the European Parliament, taking into account both efficiency and political feasibility.
