Frontexit is an inter-associative and international collective for the protection of the rights of people in migration at the external borders of the European Union.
Who are we ?
Frontexit brings together 19 associations, researchers and individuals from civil society in the North and South of the Mediterranean (Belgium, Cameroon, France, Italy, Mali, Morocco, Mauritania, International organizations, European and Euro-African networks). The collective is coordinated by Migreurop and EuroMed Rights.
What are we asking for ?
Frontexit's objective is two-fold: to inform a broad public about the drift in Frontex's operations in terms of Human Rights, and to expose these abuses to the political representatives directly involved.
- More concretely, through our actions of investigation, litigation, sensitization and political inquiry, we ask for:
- Transparency on the mandates, responsibilities and actions of Frontex;
- The suspension of agency activities identified as contrary to Human Rights;
The annulment of the regulation creating Frontex, if it is shown that the mandate of the agency is incompatible with respect for fundamental rights.
