In 2012, there were over 330,000 applications for asylum in the EU, representing a 10% increase on the previous year highlighting the need to provide adequate protection measures and responses throughout the EU. In addition to the figures, other elements provide cause for concern, such as the growing number of unaccompanied minors. Groups such as these require particular attention and measures in order to properly protect them.

The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union adopted legislation in June 2013 on common procedures for granting and withdrawing international protection. This is the latest development in a series of steps towards harmonising asylum procedures in the EU. These developments towards the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) should enter into force in 2015 ; with the most recent Dublin rules being implemented in 2014. This raises the question of the challenges to implementation faced by MemberStates and how these new rules and regulations will impact the existing systems and standards already in place.

The EU institutions and the agencies that have been created are vital in providing a monitoring role and pushing towards harmonisation, whilst managing borders in an effective way that ensures respect for fundamental rights. These agencies provide a focal point for the EU to undertake research and gather information, as well as giving a range of support, training and stimulation for further action.

This timely International Symposium will examine the implications of current directives and rules for asylum at an EU level and assess the implementation challenges for Member States as they transpose them into their national legislation. The Symposium offers a vital platform to discuss the current dimensions for granting and withdrawing international protection and explore how all stakeholders must contribute to facilitate better cooperation and better protection for asylum seekers, which includes finding the right compromise between guaranteeing human rights and ensuring that immigration controls are effective and efficient.

The Symposium will support the exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking topical debate with local and regional practitioners and policymakers at EU level.

Delegates will :

Discuss the implementation challenges for the Common European Asylum System
Analyse the current asylum dimensions and opportunities in Europe
Explore possibilities for increasing cooperation between MemberStates and major stakeholders in improving reallocation and resettlement policies in Europe
Exchange best practices from pivotal projects implemented in Europe
