Dublin II Regulation: lives on hold (Dublin transnational network project)
The Dublin transnational network project co-ordinated by Forum Réfugiés -Cosi in collaboration with ECRE, the Hungarian Helsinki Committee and national partners published a comparative report on the Dublin application in several EU member states.
On the 10th anniversary of the Dublin Regulation, that identifies which European State is responsible for examining an asylum application, the Dublin transnational network project published a comparative report on its application in Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
According to the report, the Dublin system, which Member States see as a pillar of the Common European Asylum System, continues to operate to the detriment of refugees, causing families to be separated, an increased use in detention and hindering their access to the asylum procedure.
