Towards a Common European Asylum System: Improving Protection, Solidarity and Harmonisation
The Silken Berlaymont Hotel, Brussels
Wednesday 21st March 2012
In recent years, the EU has been receiving an average of 1.8 million immigrants annually and as such, immigration has become a key issue in the national politics of many Member States.
The Common European Asylum System (CEAS), which was reinforced by The Hague Programme (November 2004) and The Stockholm Programme (2009), is currently in its second phase, with the Cypriot Presidency hoping to finalise the System by the end of 2012.
This timely International Symposium will explore the ongoing challenges that Europe is facing to increase the practical cooperation between member states, especially in relation to the collection of measurable data on asylum seekers.
