The desperate humanitarian, political and economic situation in a number of developing countries means that people often have no choice but to flee. Many risk their lives in doing so. There is therefore a broad consensus that we should address the causes of their having to escape in order to improve the living conditions in these countries. Moreover, stopping people from fleeing a precarious situation and denying them their right to asylum is not in-line with European values.
