Statewatch publishes analyses on EU immigration and asylum law in 2012 and the EU Justice and Home Affairs agenda for 2013

Friday, October 4, 2013

In the first analysis of the steps taken in 2012 with regard to the new EU legislation on asylum, Statewatch reviews the pieces of legislation which were agreed, but not adopted, in 2012, and those which were still under negotiation by the end of the year. Under the first category fall the Directive on Reception Conditions and the Dublin Regulation, while negotiations are still on going for the Directive on asylum procedures and the Eurodac Regulation. The outstanding issues concerning these two pieces of legislation are also analysed.

The complete analysis can be read here.

The second analysis examines the Justice and Home Affairs current proposals for legislation and the likelihood of agreement on them in 2013. This includes the outstanding pieces of legislation of the Common European Asylum System. It also sets out the Commission's future proposals for 2013.
