Opinion on the situation of exiled persons in Calais and Grande-Synthe

Five years after its first field missions, alerted by several of its members, the National Consultative Commission for Human Rights (CNCDH) decided to return to Calais and Grande-Synthe in December 2020. In an opinion adopted on 11 February 2021, it makes a clear statement : the dignity of exiled persons in Calais and Grande-Synthe is still being violated.

Following CNCDH's third trip to Calais and Grande-Synthe on 15 and 16 December 2020 to meet with exiled people, public authorities and associations, the Commission recommends that the public authorities put an end to the the  policy  to combat “anchor points”, with its disastrous consequences for exiled persons and caregivers. The CNCDH also recalls the need to set up a "humanitarian infrastructure" in Calais mentioned by the President of the Republic to meet the most essential needs of the exiled persons. Finally, following some thirty recommendations, the CNCDH stresses the need to establish international protection for exiled persons in the post-Brexit negotiations with the United Kingdom.
