France's state of emergency 'sends wrong message to the world'
Date created :
Dimitris Christopoulos is the president of the International Federation for Human Rights. It's a tough job to have at a time when the West's commitment to long-cherished human rights is being tested - by waves of migrants fleeing war, by terrorism on our soil, and by the rise of identity politics. He tells FRANCE 24 why he believes France's state of emergency should be lifted, why he opposes the EU-Turkey migrant deal, and what he really thinks of US President-elect Donald Trump.
