ECRE & EASO, Unaccompanied Minors, Syria...

Updates for the European Asylum Support Office (EASO):

  • A 23rd July press release from the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the European Union refers to EASO's involvement in discussions on Syrian refugees.  We haven't read much about this involvement, but we're very interested in getting an idea of what EASO's thinking.  A serious concern is of course the situation of Syrian refugees in countries neighbouring Syria, and here the EU's role would be primarily one of solidarity in it broad sense, yet we're particularly concerned about the disparate levels of protection granted to Syrian refugees here in the EU and what it says about MS commitments to a true Common European Asylum system with harmonised standards; 

  • On the latter point, and on many other current issues involving CEAS and EASO have you read ECRE's recommendations to the Cyprus Presidency, here.
