We, the undersigned, are gathered in Europe, at the world’s largest conference regarding borders, borderlands and migration. We are scholars, practitioners, teachers and students. We are thinkers and doers. We are deeply concerned about current and planned refugee and migration policies -- and the use of racism cloaked in the language of security and economics. 

All humans have a right to live free of fear and to seek protection for themselves and their families. We are outraged by the use of law and politics to make legal that which is inherently immoral and inhumane.

History has shown us the consequences when good people see injustice and do nothing. We do not accept this. We will not be silent.
