Project description

A key challenge to the EU stems from the progressive rise of migration/refugee flows in the Mediterranean. To manage this, from the 1990s on attempts have been made to develop a common European policy. The research will outline the evolution of the EU asylum policy and assess the various attempts to develop a Common European Asylum System and its compliance with human rights standards, inter alia the Geneva Refugee Convention and the ECHR.
