Policy Fellow Lucas Rasche talks about the role of Frontex in illegal pushbacks at EU's external borders.
"Frontex has deliberately accepted human rights violations," says Lucas Rasche. This is problematic because Frontex, as an EU authority, is bound by international law. However, Lucas Rasche also points to the role of the member states, which bear a major responsibility for the EU's closed-doors policy. "Frontex is as good or bad as the policy behind it," Lucas Rasche explains.
