New campaign in Hungary “fuelling xenophobia”

21 December 2015

Hungary is being urged to refrain from “policies and practices that promote intolerance”.

The call came from the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), following the Hungarian government’s launch of a new campaign that portrays those fleeing war and conflict as criminals, invaders and terrorists.

UNHCR says the public outreach effort, which was launched this month, promotes fear and fuels xenophobia against refugees and migrants.

Mamadou Alpha Diallo spoke to William Spindler, UNHCR Spokesperson, about the campaign.
