President Eydoux gave a speech on the state of emergency and the current context of migrants in Europe.

Monsieur Pascal Eydoux, Président du Conseil national des barreaux et Monsieur Michel Bénichou, Président du CCBE.
Monsieur Pascal Eydoux, Président du Conseil national des barreaux et Monsieur Michel Bénichou, Président du CCBE.
The migrations present humanitarian, economic and cultural challenges for Europe and all of its countries. Since the tragic attacks which occurred on its territory in 2015, France has adopted laws which seriously reduce the freedoms of national and foreign citizens.

These laws drive a wedge between lawyers and judges. They reduce the power of judges. The laws attempt to assimilate and confuse the misfortune suffered by migrants with terrorist hate.

Speech made by the President of the Conseil national des barreaux at the 44th European Presidents' Conference
As a lawyer, this is something I deplore and condemn.
As a lawyer, I would remind you that the role of a state is to protect its citizens. This is not a moral obligation, but a normative one.
As a lawyer, I would remind you that the role of all states is to guarantee the future of humanity as a whole, irrespective of origins, religions and cultures.

The walls built between people have never stopped those who are fleeing death. They cannot, and will never be able to. I believe that Europe and its 450 million citizens are able to take in the equivalent of a tiny percentage of their population in order to save the unfortunate who are in danger, wherever they are from and whatever culture they belong to.

In turning them away, Europe would no longer fulfill its mission and will no longer offer a future to humanity, contrary to all that it has achieved throughout the centuries.

President of the Conseil national des barreaux
