Description : What are the dynamics created between the States, the affected people and humanitarian organizations working at borders? What are 'humanitarian borders' and can it help address some of the issues, including access to international protection, non-refoulement and use of force? This discussion on 'humanizing' borders, took place two weeks before the adoption of the Global Compact on Migration in Marrakesh, featuring representatives of affected communities, international organizations and academia.

Borders were created to protect States and their citizens. Border management should also take into account humanitarian considerations including on issues related to immigration detention, use of force at borders and the principle of non refoulement and must also respect legal obligations.

This discussion on 'humanizing' borders took place two weeks before the adoption of the Global Compact on Migration in Marrakesh and featured representatives of affected communities, international organizations and academia. What are the dynamics created between the States, the affected people and humanitarian organizations working at borders? What are 'humanitarian borders' and can it help address some of the issues, including access to international protection, non-refoulement and use of force at borders? And how can States, as those with the primary responsibility, together with humanitarian organisations make borders more 'humane', so that people are not put under more risk and their needs are adequately addressed?

Speakers : Pia Oberoi, Advisor on Migration and Human Rights, OHCHR; Polly Pallister-Wilkins, Assistant professor in international relations and conflict resolution and governance at the University of Amsterdam.
