Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
None shall enter is not "the" EU policy, it is the accumulative result of the absence of one. Which seems to suit a number of countries just fine.

Transporter liability - making airlines stop refugees from entering the EU on planes - sure is an EU policy.

And if the EU has no policy, then what was the comission doing last autumn?

EUROPA - Press Releases - European Commission and Libya agree a Migration Cooperation agenda during high level visit to boost EU-Libya relations

  • Good progress in the negotiations of the bilateral 'Framework Agreement', which will establish a very first official and legal relationship between the EU and Libya and open up many areas for working together.

  • Increased financial support for Libya's reforms amounting to a total of € 60 million for the period 2011-2013. These funds will help improve Libya's health sector, support economic development and in particular Libya's small and medium enterprises, and assist the Libyan administration in its modernisation efforts.

  • Opening an EU Office in Tripoli, that should become operational before the end of the year, as a demonstration of EU's commitment to establishing a long-term relationship with Libya.

  • Agreement with Libya to develop our cooperation on migration-related issues.

60 million euros to stop refugees and increased trade on top of it. Sure looks like the EU has a policy to stop refugees before they reach the border.

There is no EU policy, but "None shall enter" would be a potential policy. Collective EU policy is not necessarily humane.
