HUMAN RIGHTS TALK: Has the EU’s common asylum policy failed?

For years the EU has struggled to achieve a Common European Asylum System (CEAS). By mid-July of this year all the CEAS guidelines should have been implemented in order to guarantee asylum seekers across Europe with the same minimum conditions for reception and care, access to asylum proceedings and the asylum decision making process. The reality of the situation looks startlingly different; Europe’s refugee policy is in a grave state of crisis.

HUMAN RIGHTS TALK: A Life on Hold – Refugee Resettlements in the EU

Hundreds of thousands of refugees are stuck in limbo. They cannot go home because of war and persecution. Some end up in refugee camps that are unsafe and located near conflict areas for months, even years at a time. Others live in situations that leave them vulnerable, exposed to abuse or unable to access fundamental human rights. For some of these refugees, the only hope is to be accepted for resettlement by another country that will give them a chance to restart their lives in safety.
