UNHCR is more substantive in outlining what it believes ought to be the impact of the Hungarian Presidency on EASO. In its December 2010 recommendations to Hungary, together with highlighting its readiness and eagerness to fully cooperate with EASO (a cooperation specifically envisaged in the EASO Regulation...see earlier post), UNHCR recommends the following:
- pending full EASO operationalisation, efforts should be made to improve the situation in Greece;
- with EASO leadership, the Hungarian Presidency ought to explore the possibility of a pilot project on the internal relocation and joint processing of asylum-seekers.
- undertake an evaluation of the first RABIT operation to ensure that the eventual deployment by EASO of the Asylum Expert Teams contributes to strengthening access to European asylum procedures;
- strengthen the Consultative Forum by bringing to EASO its positive experiences of cooperating with NGOs
