Council of Europe
Asylum and the European Convention on Human Rights 2010
Human Rights Files No. 9
- Council of Europe (CoE)
This substantially revised new edition considers the significant body of case law of the European Court of Human Rights which has examined the compatibility of the Convention with measures taken by states in relation to all aspects of the asylum process.
Political upheavals, economic reforms, social instability and civil war have all been factors contributing to changes in the mixed flows of migrants both to and within Europe. Many of those in need of international protection are forced to seek it in Europe and the new member states of the enlarged Council of Europe are now also experiencing the arrival of asylum seekers.
This timely study also considers the increasingly relevant provisions of EU law developments in the field, as well as measures taken in the context of terrorist threats - both of which have had a significant impact on the practical circumstances and law on refugees and asylum seekers.
Comprehensive overview of recent trends in Europe sets the scene
Authoritative, timely review of all aspects of the asylum process
Includes practical case studies/real life examples.
