The one with all of them

12:45 . During my philosophy degree, I really got into Hannah Arendt; she touched upon the notion of humanity. It is not as if we did not have a concept of human rights before 1948. But the question that arose throughout history and that differed according to contexts was: Do we acknowledge all people to be human?

I am sad to see the discourse that some political groups have employed within the EU, targeting migrants as a source of issues.

When talking about migrants we are dealing with workers, expats, refugees, family migrants. All of them are human beings.
