The End Pushbacks Partnership was a collective of independent organisations and groups working across Europe to support displaced individuals and uphold the rights of people on the move.

In 2020-2021, we came together as the End Pushbacks Partnership.

We collectively denounced the growing Europe-wide trend of ‘pushbacks’, which have emerged as a Europe-wide response to asylum and migration.

In a challenging period of increasingly narrow space for civil society and wide-spread disillusionment surrounding the notion of human rights and the criminalisation of solidarity …

… we realised that we were stronger when working together.
