Ways out of paradoxical legal settings
In this chapter we develop solutions for bottlenecks and paradoxical realities in these two areas both within the existing regulations as well as by widening their margins. Ways are described how the temporary settlement can fit into the regulatory requirements.
Using existing buildings for the purposes of temporary settlements, that are already licensed but hard to rent out is a way to avoid complicated procedures, wherever such buildings are found. In areas that are to be newly developed and built, we suggest the introduction of temporary licenses as a way to create the flexibility required to implement temporary settlements.
In any case it is recommended to collaborate closely with local authorities as well as neighboring communities from the start to avoid appeals and objections and any lengthy legislative procedures.
Concerning the regulations on migration, the current legislation does not succeed fully in its aim of limiting migration but rather has the effect of making existing migration illegal. This leads to threats to public peace, safety and health by creating homelessness and illegal employment as well as to a filling up of scarce prison space with a non criminal population. We suggest to develop temporary working permits for asylum seekers involved in the procedures of a second appeal. Contrary to opinions often voiced, this can contribute to reducing the existing gap between first and second class employment, and to access a much needed labor force in areas like agriculture and care.
