This book is based on a conference on the future of the European asylum policy at Erasmus School of Law in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. After a challenge set by the Dutch State Secretary for Justice, Ms Nebahat Albayrak, the contributions to this book focus on human rights aspects of the European asylum policy and the way the EU Member States need to cooperate in the future in order to reach results. The authors are scholars, policy makers and representatives of NGOs. In this way, many different aspects of the problems are put forward. In the introduction and the conclusion the editors evaluate the results of this broad cooperation. Valuable for academics, practitioners, policymakers and NGO’s involved with European asylum policy issues.

Political upheavals, economic reforms, social instability and civil war have all been factors contributing to changes in the mixed flows of migrants both to and within Europe. Many of those in need of international protection are forced to seek it in Europe and the new member states of the enlarged Council of Europe are now also experiencing the arrival of asylum seekers. This revised edition considers the substantial body of case law of the European Court of Human Rights which has examined the compatibility of the Convention with measures taken by states in relation to all aspects of the asylum process. It also observes the role of subsidiary protection offered by the Strasbourg organs in protecting those at risk of prohibited treatment. In addition, the study considers the increasingly relevant provisions of EU law developments in the field, as well as measures taken in the context of terrorist threats – both of which have had a significant impact on the practical circumstances and law on refugees and asylum seekers. --back cover.

In recent years the laws and policies on asylum of the EU and its Member States have converged towards greater restriction and raise concern as to the commitment of the EU to protect the right to seek refugee status within its territory and uphold this fundamental right beyond its borders. This book analyses the implications of the EU asylum policy for the right to seek refugee status within the meaning of the 1951 UN Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. The author contends that the development of other forms of international protection does not erode the relevance of the Convention, which remains a cornerstone of refugee protection. Relevant EU legislation and proposals for future legislation are measured against the standards set out in international refugee and human rights law with a view to making law reform proposals for the protection of the right to seek refugee status within the EU. Substantive and procedural issues are examined to this end. Refugee protection presents considerable challenges for the EU, its Member States and the international community at large. It is critical that adherence to international standards remains central to the shaping of the EU asylum policy if the EU is to face up to its responsibilities and obligations.

The European Convention on Human Rights and European Union law provide an increasingly important framework for the protection of the rights of foreigners. European Union legislation relating to asylum, borders and immigration is developing fast. There is an impressive body of case law by the European Court of Human Rights relating in particular to Articles 3, 5, 8 and 13 of the ECHR. The Court of Justice of the European Union is increasingly asked to pronounce itself on the interpretation of European Union law provisions in this field. This handbook presents this European Union legislation and the body of case law by the two European courts in an accessible way. It is intended for legal practitioners, judges, prosecutors, immigration officials and nongovernmental organisations, in the EU and Council of Europe Member States.

In recent decades, asylum has emerged as a highly politicized European issue. The term ’asylum seeker’ has suffered a negative perception and has been associated with notions of illegality and criminality in mainstream media. These misconceptions have been supported by politicians as a distraction from economic and political uncertainties with the result that asylum seekers have been deprived of significant rights. This book examines the effect of recent attempts of harmonization on the identification and protection of refugees. It considers the extent of obligations on the state to admit and protect refugees and examines the 1951 Refugee Convention. The motivations of European legislators and legislation concerning asylum procedures and reception conditions are also analysed. Proposals and initiatives for refugee movements and determinations are examined and assessed. The author makes suggestions for better protection of refugees while responding to the security concerns of States, and questions whether European law and policy is doing enough to uphold the fundamental right to seek and enjoy asylum as set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This book takes a bold look at a controversial issue and generates discussion for those involved in the fields of human rights, migrational and transnational studies, law and society and international law.

The place of human rights in EU law has been a central issue in contemporary debates about the character of the European Union as a political organisation. This comprehensive and timely Handbook explores the principles underlying the development of fundamental rights norms and the way such norms operate in the case law of the Court of Justice. Leading scholars in the field discuss both the effect of rights on substantive areas of EU law and the role of EU institutions in protecting them.

Asylum Law In The European Union

This book examines the rules governing the right to asylum in the European Union. Drawing on the 1951 United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, and the 1967 Protocol, Francesco Cherubini asks how asylum obligations under international refugee law have been incorporated into the European Union. The book draws from international law, EU law and the case law of the European Court of Human Rights, and focuses on the prohibition of refoulement; the main obligation the EU law must confront. Cherubini explores the dual nature of this principle, examining both the obligation to provide a fair procedure that determines the conditions of risk in the country of origin or destination, and the obligation to respond to a possible expulsion. Through this study the book sheds light on EU competence in asylum when regarding the different positions of Member States. The book will be of great use and interest to researchers and students of asylum and immigration law, EU law, and public international law.
