Images from Bosnia: Why is there no improvement?
Images from Bosnia point to the detrimental situation of migrants. In the midst of winter, some do not live in fortified camps or shelters, but in improvised tents in the forests near the Croatian border – an EU external border. The closure of the Lipa tent camp by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) due to the camp's insufficient standards has raised questions. After all, in the past three years the European Union has invested more than 88 million euro in improving the migrants’ conditions. Individual EU states, such as Germany, have also supported the authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and important international aid organizations, such as the IOM, are active in the country. Nevertheless, the problem does not seem to have been resolved, and the migrants’ situation not to have improved. Why?
