Der pågår en debat, iblandt lægger regeringen op til lovændringer på asylområdet. således at asyl skal gøres til noget midlertidigt.

Forskningschef Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen fra Institut for Menneskerettigheder mener, at den skærpede praksis godt kan tillades i de internationale konventioner.
»Der er givet et vist spillerum, hvis man ønsker at sende flere flygtninge tilbage, når der er blevet fred. Der er ikke noget i flygtningekonventionen, der sikrer, at flygtningestatus skal være permanent eller nødvendigvis føre til statsborgerskab,« siger han til altinget.dk.
- And you mention that you held a number of different ministerial
24 posts. Was one of those posts minister of the interior?
25 A. Yes. I was minister for the interior from February 1993 to
1 October 1997. In addition to that, I have been minister for health, I’m
2 minister for research, I’m minister for ecclesiastical affairs.
3 Q. And focusing on your time as minister of the interior, was your
4 work connected to Bosnia-Herzegovina?
5 A. Yes, it was, to a very great extent. We received 20.000 Bosnian
6 refugees in Denmark, and it was a major task for us both in terms of
7 logistics but also, of course, in terms of politics.
8 Q. And you mentioned that you left the ministry — your position as
9 minister of the interior in 1997. Why did you leave your position at
10 that time?
11 A. It had nothing to do with the Bosnian refugees or the policies
12 pursued in relation to them. The reason was a more fundamental
13 disagreement concerning the long-term immigrant policy, disagreement
14 between the prime minister and myself, and for that reason the logical
15 consequence was that I left my post.
16 Q. And very briefly, what was your position in respect to the
17 refugees at that time?
18 A. I was in charge of a policy which was not to be too rigid as
19 regarded the reception of the refugees, and in addition to that I was to
20 pursue an inclusive policy concerning the integration of the refugees who
21 were given permit to stay in Denmark.
