Pressure is mounting on European policymakers following fatal tragedies last week that have highlighted the continued plight of migrants seeking asylum in the region.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve is due to meet with other European officials on Monday regarding the situation at Calais, which has reached crisis point. Thousands of people, many from war-torn Syria, have gathered at the port and are attempting to cross the channel to Britain, where they hope to claim refuge. A further emergency meeting of European Union officials will take place on September 14.
These meetings will come after a string of migrant deaths across the continent in recent months, as record numbers have made the risky journey to Europe from the middle east and North Africa.
