Ad-Hoc Query on Reception and Care of Vulnerable Applicants for International Protection with Special Reception Needs

22 (Member) States provided information regarding their definition of the concept of vulnerability and their practices regarding the identification and the care of vulnerable applicants for international protection with special reception needs.  

Background

The Federal Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (Fedasil) is conducting a study on vulnerable applicants for international protection with special reception needs. The aim of the study is to establish a detailed picture of the practices in the field relating to the identification of vulnerabilities and special reception needs, and the extent to which the particular needs of vulnerable persons within the reception network are taken into account in a general sense.

In this framework, the Belgian National Contact Point (NCP) of the EMN launched two  ad-hoc queries in March and April 2018 respectively.

The queries collect information from the Member States regarding their definition of the concept of vulnerability and their practices regarding the identification and the care of vulnerable applicants for international protection with special reception needs.

22 (Member) States, including Belgium, provided an answer to Part I and Part II of the ad-hoc query.
