Nyhetsbrev från EU:s rättighetsbyrå tar upp våld mot migranter i Grekland till sidans topp

Migrants continue to suffer as reception centres remain overcrowded and violence against migrants surges

Significant increase in arrivals in Greece, overcrowding of reception centres and violence against migrants at the borders are some of the fundamental rights concerns FRA identifies in its latest migration quarterly report. It also highlights the situation in the Mediterranean, where boats with migrants were still being forced to remain at sea, waiting for weeks or days until they were allowed to disembark.

The Greek islands saw a significant increase in arrivals over the summer and in September. The reception centres in Greece were completely overcrowded, with some camps hosting eight times as many people as is their capacity. The living conditions in these hotspots were dire, taking a toll on the mental and physical health of refugees.

The situation at the border has been tense, with human rights organisations reporting continuous violations of refugees' rights. In Croatia, NGOs documented police violence against migrants and pushbacks from Croatia to Bosnia and Herzegovina. Pushbacks also continued to be reported from France (to Italy), Hungary, Poland, North Macedonia and Serbia. At sea, several people died after their boat sank. Italy continued to delay the disembarkation of migrants and refugees rescued by NGO vessels. However, small steps towards finding a solution to migrant distribution were made when France, Germany, Italy and Malta agreed on a transitional solution for migrants rescued from distress at sea.

Unaccompanied children continued to face many challenges, especially in Greece, Hungary, Italy, Spain and Croatia. In most countries, there was no secure accommodation for these children and they were frequently becoming victims of trafficking for labour or sexual exploitation. For example, in Croatia, the Ombudsman for children reported about unaccompanied children living in juvenile centres for children with behavioural problems, which cannot provide for appropriate accommodation and care.

The Migrants Law Project 2019:

It Can Be Done - a podcast about human rights law in action till sidans topp

It Can be Done is a new podcast from the Migrants' Law Project that explores how strategic litigation can be used for social change. Episodes are released every two weeks.

The first series will look at the work of lawyers, activists, and others during the 'refugee crisis' of 2015. For the first time, it will tell the story of how people came together to use strategic litigation to open up safe and legal routes to family reunion for refugees trapped in dire conditions in informal camps on the European mainland. We will focus on the work to reunite children and young people in Calais with family in the UK. Over several episodes, we'll delve into how the legal strategy developed, we'll meet the people involved, we'll learn about the collaborations with charities, doctors and volunteers on the ground, we'll discuss the law, and we'll look at the legacy of the work.

Episode #1: "My name is Kotaiba. I am from Syria"

Episode #2: The Jungle or "The best and worst of humanity in one place"

New episodes will be released every two weeks. You can sign up for alerts here.

Forced Migration Review October 2019:

Return: voluntary, safe, dignified and durable? till sidans topp

Voluntary return in safety and with dignity has long been a core tenet of the international refugee regime. In the 23 articles on 'Return' in this issue of FMR, authors explore various obstacles to achieving sustainable return, discuss the need to guard against premature or forced return, and debate the assumptions and perceptions that influence policy and practice. This issue also includes a mini-feature on 'Towards understanding and addressing the root causes of displacement'.

The mini-feature on 'Towards understanding and addressing the root causes of displacement' has been prepared to inform discussions at the first Global Refugee Forum in December 2019. This collection of articles written by authors from the UN, NGOs and academia aims to enhance collective understanding of some of the root causes of displacement.

This issue of FMR will be available online and in print in English, Arabic and Spanish. The mini-feature will also be available as a standalone 24-page booklet in these three languages plus French.

Also available:

Editors' briefing: provides headline analysis of the feature theme and mini-feature articles, with hyperlinks to articles - available online and in print in English and Arabic (A4 format)

Digest: presents a listing of all articles published in FMR 62, including article title, author(s) and affiliation, introductory sentences and links to the article online - available in English, Arabic and Spanish (A5 format)

Podcasts: the articles will shortly be available (in English) in audio/podcast format.

Migrants of the Mediterranean 19-08-06:

New podcast "Open Encounters" creates platform for migrant voices till sidans topp

Humanitarian Storytelling continues in the new weekly podcast giving voice to African migrants in Italy.

"Open Encounters," the official podcast from Migrants of the Mediterranean (MotM) gives voice to the individual people who have escaped Libya and crossed the Mediterranean Sea before finding safety in Italy.

They are now on their next journeys, of settling their lives in the Italian mainland and in other parts of Europe. The podcast extension of MotM Humanitarian Storytelling explores this aspect of life post-rescue and reception in audio conversations with host and founder, Pamela Kerpius.

"Open Encounters" shares the details of those living and awaiting asylum proceedings in Italy through personal, one-on-one talks.

Topics covered are unique to each guest who hail from countries primarily across West Africa, including integration and racism, language, labor and employment, missing persons and more.

Pamela Kerpius calls upon the personal relationship developed with each individual (some having been documented now over the course of years) to create an approachable dialogue for her guests and listeners alike, and to break down negative concepts of "otherness."

The migration flow in Europe, the US and around the world too often dominates the headlines in political terms. Here, Kerpius changes that, elevating the migration discourse squarely in human terms, refocusing Mediterranean migration as a humanitarian crisis, and introducing the complex, dimensional and engaging people that have heretofore gone unheard.

Removals continue: the reality of migration policies across Member States till sidans topp

Food deprivation, removals with no prior notice and the arrest of humanitarian workers carrying out search and rescue operations at sea are some of the fundamental rights concerns FRA identifies in its latest migration quarterly. It reports on some of the fallout in EU Member States as they continue to harden their migration policies and laws. It also highlights longstanding problems resulting from overcrowding and asylum processing.

The report throws a spotlight on events from April to June 2019. It reveals the impact of the tough line some EU Member States are taking towards asylum seekers and migrants.

For example, authorities in Hungary are denying food to rejected asylum seekers waiting in transit zones. In France, authorities are removing irregular migrants without giving them prior notice, contrary to the law. In Croatia, the media reported on incidents of pushbacks and included testimonies from children of police threats and violence at the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. In Greece, changes in who receives housing assistance has led to refugee evictions.

The Italian government's hardline position on preventing NGO ships from disembarking migrants rescued at sea has led to the seizure of ships, and arrests of the crew and captain for docking with migrants in Italy. Italian courts later acquitted the captain citing UN maritime law.

Migrants crossing the sea to reach Spain also remains a concern. NGOs estimate that between 2018 and April 2019, around 70 ships carrying 1,020 migrants sank on their way to Spain, with over 1000 people either dead or disappeared.

Refugee Studies Centre 19-06-20:

New 'Rethinking Refuge' platform launched today till sidans topp

With global displacement receiving increased attention, robust relevant research and new perspectives on refugees and forced migration are needed. The new Rethinking Refuge platform from the Refugee Studies Centre provides short, research-based articles aimed at rethinking refugee issues from a variety of angles, such as politics, international relations, ethics, law, history, and anthropology. The platform seeks to bridge the gap between scholarly research, policy-making, and public understanding, and in so doing develop a research agenda able to engage meaningfully with the challenge of forced displacement in the 21st century. The articles fall under six core themes, each hugely relevant to the international refugee regime today: refugee protection, emergency and crisis, mobility, refugee agency, humanitarianism, and refugees' economic lives.

Authors and articles include Professor Matthew Gibney (RSC Director) writing on 'The duties of refugees', Professor Cathryn Costello (RSC) and Dr Jennifer Allsopp (SOAS) on 'Smuggling prohibitions vs. duties of humanity', Dr Natascha Zaun (LSE) on 'Rethinking the "European refugee crisis"', Dr Evan Easton-Calabria (RSC), Dr Kate Pincock (ODI), and Professor Alexander Betts (RSC) on 'Refugee-led organisations', and Dr Anne-Line Rodriguez (Queen Mary University London) on 'Rethinking voluntary returns from North Africa'.

In the words of the RSC's Director, Matthew Gibney, "By offering the work of the Refugee Studies Centre's researchers and affiliates in this format, we aim to encourage and generate new thinking on forced migration and to make the RSC's work even more accessible to a wide variety of audiences across the globe."

Klimatmigranter på flykt i torkans spår - Rädda Barnen lanserar ny podd till sidans topp

Idag lanseras säsong två av Rädda Barnen Dokumentär. Den nya poddserien handlar om klimatkrisen och konsekvenserna för barn. Klimatförändringarna går snabbt, och det är de fattiga och sårbara samhällen som drabbas allra hårdast.

Miljoner människor lämnar varje år sina hem på grund av klimatrelaterade orsaker. Men begreppet "klimatflyktingar" är omtvistat eftersom en flykting är en person som omfattas av flyktingkonventionen. Att lämna sitt hem på grund av klimatrelaterade orsaker som torka, översvämning finns inte med i konventionen vilket gör att de inte har samma rättigheter som en person som flyr från konflikt. Samtidigt ser Rädda Barnen att klimatdriven migration är ett fenomen som kommer att öka på flera platser i världen.

I Östafrika är effekterna av klimatförändringarna tydliga, och mest utsatta är barnen. Torkan kommer allt tätare och på vissa platser har regnen nästan slutat falla. I podden hörs de drabbades egna berättelser och klimatexperter berättar om vägen framåt.

Podden är i två avsnitt, inspelade i Kenya och Etiopien, två länder som fortfarande lider av sviterna från den stora hungerkrisen 2017. Bristen på regn de senaste åren har gjort situationen desperat. I Etiopien har över en halv miljon människor tvingats lämna sina hem i klimatförändringarnas spår. På grund av torkan har enorma flyktingläger växt fram, fyllda av familjer som förlorat boskap och försörjningsmöjligheter. I podden berättar barn och föräldrarna om en ny verklighet, där många inte ser någon annan möjlighet än att migrera i hopp om ett bättre liv.

- Jag lämnade ifrån mig två av mina barn, jag kunde inte ta hand om alla. Jag skickade tre- och fyraåringen över gränsen till släktingar i Somaliland. Jag har inte sett dem sen dess, men jag har hört att de lever. Mina barn har otur som får leva nu, säger 40-åriga Milgo som bor i ett läger i den somaliska regionen i Östra Etiopien.

Migrants continue to suffer from harsh stance in Member States till sidans topp

Migrants' fundamental rights continue to be challenged by a tightening up of national policies and laws towards migration, finds FRA's latest report. It highlights emerging concerns as support for healthcare and housing is cut as well as perennial problems resulting from overcrowding and asylum processing.

Yet again, the report points to examples in some Member States of changes in their position towards asylum seekers and migrants that negatively affects migrant lives.

For example, the Danish Parliament passed a bill in which all residence permits for refugees and their family members are temporary. It also foresees limiting the number of residence permits issued for family reunification if asylum applications in Denmark grow significantly in a short time period. Sanctions for rejected asylum seekers who do not stay at their designated centre will be tougher, leading to 40 days in prison in some cases.

In Greece, some people who were granted refugee status before 31 July 2017 will no longer receive housing assistance. This could lead to an increase in homelessness and hamper access to some services, such as continued education for children.

In Germany, social services are refusing to reimburse hospitals for emergency treatment of irregular migrants. In some instances, access to healthcare depends on the outcome of asylum procedures. In addition, it was reported that on average asylum seekers had to wait over seven months for access to psychotherapy, and 45% of applications for psychotherapy were rejected at the start of 2019 compared with 35% in 2018.

Elsewhere, there are new tougher asylum proposals in Austria. These include: housing in departure centres during admission; curfews; 20 days for asylum procedures which can hamper the proper scrutiny of claims; the withdrawal of asylum for certain criminal acts; and preventative detention for some asylum seekers.

Vem är en brottsling? till sidans topp

Nu släpps det tredje avsnittet av den nya podden Vem har rätt - en podcast om rörelsejuridik.

Hur hänger politik, makt, demokrati och juridik ihop? Hur kan juridiken användas för progressiv samhällsförändring?

Det är några av frågeställningarna i den nya podcasten Vem har rätt, som riktar sig till alla som är intresserade av samhällsfrågor och vill veta mer om juridik. Programledare är Fatima Osman och Joanna Herskovits. I varje avsnitt bjuder podden in gäster som arbetar med eller berörs av det aktuella temat.

- Det är tydligt att det finns en skillnad mellan att ha rätt och att få rätt i Sverige idag. I den här podden vill vi undersöka det glappet och vi tror på den organiserande kraften av folkbildning, säger Fatima Osman.

Nu har Vem har rätt sänt tre avsnitt. I det första ställer de sig frågan: Vad är rörelsejuridik? I det andra avsnittet har de besök av två gäster och diskuterar för- och nackdelar med att förbjuda rasistiska organisationer. I det senaste avsnittet intervjuar de Leandro Schclarek Mulinari, doktorand i kriminologi vid Stockholms Universitet, och fördjupar sig i etnisk profilering.

- Under våren har vi arrangerat en studiecirkel och en föreläsningsserie om rörelsejuridik och där märktes ett stort behov av att tillsammans diskutera den här typen av frågor, kopplingen mellan juridik och makt, säger Joanna Herskovits.

Fatima Osman läser juristprogrammet vid Stockholms universitet och jobbar på Antidiskrimineringsbyrån samt Åklagarmyndigheten. Hon är intresserad av kritisk rättsfilosofi och hur man kan omvärdera legala normer utifrån behoven i dagens samhälle.

Den nya utgåvan av Migrationsinfo för alla är här! till sidans topp

Nu kan du beställa den fjärde och uppdaterade utgåvan av Migrationsinfo för alla. Boken är fylld av relevant statistik, klargörande fakta och forskningssammanställningar. Med Migrationsinfo för alla vill vi bidra till en sakligare debatt och öka kunskapsnivån i samhället. Boken ryms i innerfickan för att kunna användas på alltifrån fikarasten på arbetsplatsen till nämndsammanträdet - och den ska kunna läsas i de delar man behöver för stunden på en bussresa eller i valstugan.

Behovet av fakta och kunskap om invandring är större än någonsin. Hur ska man veta vad som gäller? Boken hjälper dig att förstå och få en överblick över migration och integration i Sverige, EU och världen. Migrationsinfo för alla fokuserar nu för första gången extra mycket på EU. Okunskapen om vad EU bestämmer och vart EU är på väg är väldigt stor. Dessutom står EU:s migrationspolitik inför ett vägval den kommande mandatperioden. EU:s beslut på området påverkar oss i Sverige direkt. Boken innehåller därför fler texter om EU och migration än tidigare utgåvor.

Migrationsinfo för alla är baserad på texter från hemsidan migrationsinfo.se, en av Sveriges mest besökta hemsidor för frågor om migration och integration. Migrationsinfo.se upprättades och drivs av Fores och syftar till att på ett lättillgängligt sätt presentera forskning, fakta och statistik om migration och integration i Sverige, EU och världen. Vi vill bidra till en mer saklig och kunskapsbaserad debatt fri från mytbildning.

Tove Hovemyr är redaktör för boken och migrationsinfo.se samt sakkunnig på Fores migration- och integrationsprogram. Ett stort tack riktas till Hedvig Heijne, Oskar Adenfelt, Andreas Bergh, Jerzy Sarnecki, Louise Dane, Adam Reuben, Elisabeth Sköns, Magnus Andersson, John Hultengård, Johanna Hemberg och Sofia Rönnow Pessah som också arbetat i projektet. Boken ges ut av Fores i samarbete med Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan.

Border Violence Monitoring 2016-2019:

Border Violence Monitoring till sidans topp

A project documenting illegal push-backs and police violence inflicted by EU member state authorities, mainly on the borders of Serbia/Croatia, Serbia/Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina/Croatia

The reports that make up this database have been collected by volunteers in Serbia starting in 2016. These are mainly volunteers working with Rigardu, No Name Kitchen, Fresh Response, Aid Brigade, BelgrAid, Balkan Info Van, Basis, [RE:]ports Sarajevo and Infopark, as well as independent persons. In our work at different locations in Serbia, we started to notice the effects of push-backs and, increasingly, physical violence on the people we were working with. Since we started documenting cases of violence on the border, the frequency of such incidents has been ever rising and the level of violence has reached shocking levels. In solidarity with the people suffering these abuses we decided to document and publish their stories, which are all too often forgotten.

By connecting among ourselves and sharing our experiences, we soon noticed that these were not isolated episodes limited to specific places, but rather part of a large-scale, systematic deterrence strategy effected by the authorities of EU member states. Although illegal push-backs are taking place throughout South-Eastern Europe, this database concentrates mostly on cases in Croatia and Hungary, since these are where most of our testimonies come from. While there have been many attempts to raise attention for this issue by actors such as MSF, Oxfam, Human Rights Watch, UNHCR and others [1], illegal and violent push-backs are still taking place today.

Vi behöver ett genusperspektiv på asyl! till sidans topp

Trifa Shakely som är ny chefredaktör för FARR:s tidning Artikel 14, är stolt över att få presentera det här numret med djuplodande och konkreta texter om hur det faktiskt ligger till för kvinnor på flykt, både ur ett internationellt, europeiskt och svenskt perspektiv. "Vi höjer ribban från att prata om kvinnors rätt till kvinnlig tolk, till att hävda det asylrättsliga områdets akuta behov av ett tydligt genusperspektiv," påpekar Trifa i ledaren, och fortsätter:

I detta nummer skriver Nadja Hatem om kvinnor i asylprocessen, juristen Anna-Pia Beier betonar vikten av kunskap om könsrelaterat våld och förtryck i handläggningen av kvinnors asylärenden. Psykologen och psykoterapeuten Mona Lindqvist slår hål på myten om flyktingkvinnors psykiska ohälsa och söker kunskap om aktörskap och rätten till egna definitioner. Vidare skriver forskaren Katarina Stigwall om genusperspektivet i olika europeiska länder, och hur Sverige ligger till i den statistiken. Forskaren Majsa Allelin tar oss till Beirut för att berätta om situationen för arbetande migrantkvinnor i det så kallade Kefalasystemet - ett slavliknande rekryteringssystem av hushållsarbetare. Juristen Roba Azzam riktar skarp kritik mot ett system där könsrelaterad förföljelse enbart verkar existera på papper.

Vi tittar tillbaka i historien. Läs utdrag ur Lawen Mohtadis bok om Katarina Taikon. För då som nu drevs asylrörelsen framåt och bestod mest av kvinnor. Läs även om kampanjen Ain't I a Woman, ett antirasistiskt, feministiskt arbete för papperslösa kvinnors rätt till skydd.

Asylum Determination in Europe: Ethnographic Perspectives till sidans topp

Editors: Nick Gill, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter, UK. Anthony Good, University of Edinburgh, UK.

Drawing on new research material from ten European countries, Asylum Determination in Europe: Ethnographic Perspectives brings together a range of detailed accounts of the legal and bureaucratic processes by which asylum claims are decided. The book includes a legal overview of European asylum determination procedures, followed by sections on the diverse actors involved, the means by which they communicate, and the ways in which they make life and death decisions on a daily basis. It offers a contextually rich account that moves beyond doctrinal law to uncover the gaps and variances between formal policy and legislation, and law as actually practiced.

The contributors employ a variety of disciplinary perspectives - sociological, anthropological, geographical and linguistic - but are united in their use of an ethnographic methodological approach. Through this lens, the book captures the confusion, improvisation, inconsistency, complexity and emotional turmoil inherent to the process of claiming asylum in Europe.

Pride och valrörelse med Artikel 14 till sidans topp

Nya numret av FARR:s tidning Artikel 14 har tema Pride, men blickar även framåt mot valet. Den alltmer människofientliga politiken drabbar hela samhället men särskilt minoriteter, däribland hbtqi-personer och inte minst de som också är flyktingar, skriver FARR:s nya ordförande Emma Persson i numrets inledning. Numret erbjuder en översikt över vad partierna tycker - och hur de hittills röstat - i frågor om asyl, den tillfälliga lagen, boende, rättigheter för papperslösa osv.

Sverige står värd för Europride i år. Men vilka utrymmen är hbtqi-flyktingar hänvisade till när Europa, samtidigt som man hissar regnbågsflaggor, militariserar sina gränser och sätter asylrätten ur spel?

IOM releases Migapp mobile application in French, Spanish, Arabic till sidans topp

Today (19/06), IOM, the UN Migration Agency, has launched a second release of its mobile application - MigApp - in French, Spanish and Arabic.

IOM's MigApp gives migrants easy access to migration-related information and select IOM services. MigApp also helps migrants make informed decisions and allows IOM to reach a broader range of migrants by leveraging the latest mobile technology.

"The French, Spanish and Arabic versions will allow IOM to significantly widen its scope by providing a reliable source of migration-related information and services to migrants in West Africa, the Americas and the Middle East," said Alex Dougan, MigApp Project Manager, from the organization's Headquarters in Geneva.

"When we developed MigApp, our goal was to help address the challenges encountered by migrants and displaced people. Given the widespread use of mobile phones, MigApp allows IOM to inform and support more migrants directly, a key part of the Organization's mandate," he added.

MigApp was also updated with new migration-related information and services; self-paying migrants travelling to the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and United States from South Africa, Nepal, Pakistan and Egypt, can now book their medical appointments through MigApp.

A list of key institutions in the United Kingdom and their contact details have also been added under the "Country Information" feature. Users can now find information on hospitals, clinics and more in the UK. Other updates include the addition of contact details for Country Medical Centres, and the operating hours of IOM Medical Centres when using the map under Medical Services feature. Additional Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration (AVRR) information has also been added to the app.

InfoMigrants: Online platform expands offer to five languages till sidans topp

With the new language services in Dari and Pashto, the joint venture of DW, France Médias Monde and ANSA primarily seeks to reach users in Afghanistan. Infomigrants is recipient of an operating grant under AMIF.

Afghanistan is one of the main countries of origin for asylum seekers. The additional language offerings were presented at the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum in Bonn on June 11. The InfoMigrants portal, was launched in March 2017 in English, Arabic and French and now has more than half a million followers on Facebook, aims to provide refugees and migrants with current news relevant to them, informing them about the challenges of fleeing and about the conditions in the countries of arrival. In addition to practical explanations, InfoMigrants offers refugees a platform where they can talk about their own experiences.

Successful video formats include the social media format "Fact check," which addresses rumors about asylum and presents the facts behind them. In the video series #Messagebackhome, refugees in Germany have their say and send a message to friends and family back home.

Beställ den nya utgåvan av Migrationsinfo för alla till sidans topp

Nu ger vi ut den tredje upplagan av vår och Studieförbundet Vuxenskolans bok Migrationsinfo för alla. I dessa nya tider är behovet av balanserad och saklig information stort och vi hoppas att Migrationsinfo för alla i dess tredje och omarbetade utgåva kan bidra till detta. Boken ryms i innerfickan för att kunna användas på alltifrån fikarasten på arbetsplatsen till nämndsammanträdet - och den ska kunna läsas i de delar man behöver för stunden på en bussresa eller i valstugan.

I kölvattnet efter flyktingsituationen 2015 diskuteras vilka asylregler som ska gälla global nivå, i EU och givetvis även i Sverige. Vidare är det av vikt att de som kommit hit får en rimlig situation och att Sverige bättre kan ta tillvara den kompetens och det engagemang som tillkommit. Därför har integrationsfrågan nu fått större utrymme i boken. Därtill kan du läsa om färsk statistik, den senaste forskningen, flera faktatexter och samtal med människorna bakom siffrorna.

Migrationsinfo för alla är baserad på texter från hemsidan migrationsinfo.se, en av Sveriges mest besökta hemsidor för frågor om migration och integration. Migrationsinfo.se upprättades och drivs av Fores och syftar till att på ett lättillgängligt sätt presentera forskning, fakta och statistik om migration och integration, med fokus på Sverige. Vi hoppas på att kunna bidra till en mer saklig och kunskapsbaserad debatt fri från mytbildning.

Oskar Adenfelt är redaktör för boken, projektledare på Fores migrations- och integrationsprogram och skriver för migrationsinfo.se. Ett stort tack riktas till Robert Englund, David Hellman, Alice Hertzberg, Tove Hovemyr, Sabina Hedbäck, Magnus Andersson, Maroa Ahmed, Sonia Ericstam, Sofia Rönnow Pessah och Adam Reuben som också arbetat i projektet.

Migration paints mixed fundamental rights picture till sidans topp

The Agency's latest monthly report on migration-related fundamental rights issues points to persisting concerns as well as progress across a number of EU Member States. Released on International Migrants Day on 18 December it shows that while asylum applications have fallen in some Member States, they have risen in others which continues to strain resources and have a knock-on effect on services.

Looking at the situation across 14 EU Member States, it reveals how the number of asylum applicants has dropped in Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands and Poland since April 2017 compared to the same period last year. However, the same cannot be said in Greece, Finland, France, Italy, Spain and Sweden where figures rose. In Slovakia the number remained a similarly low level.

This can have knock-on effects. For example, there was enough reception capacity in many Member States, such as Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Poland, Slovakia and the Netherlands. But in countries with rising applications like France, Greece and Italy, reception facilities remained overcrowded. For example, in Italy, a facility built for 540 people maximum was hosting 1,300 people.

However, even when there are low numbers of asylum seekers , issues can remain. For example, conditions in the transit zones in Hungary remained poor for asylum applicants. The actual situation is harder to ascertain due to a lack of transparency and oversight by external actors since civil society organisations and the media are banned from these transit zones.

The October 2017 edition of the Policy Update is now available till sidans topp

The October 2017 edition of the EPIM Policy Update, prepared for organisations interested in European policy developments in the areas of migration and integration, is now available online.

EPIM has commissioned the European Policy Centre (EPC), a Brussels-based think tank, to produce regular Policy Updates.

EPIM's Policy Update addresses topics relevant to EPIM's current sub-funds: (1) Immigration detention; (2) Reforms of the European asylum system; (3) Children and youth on the move, and (4) Mobile EU citizens' access to rights.

This edition's special focus looks at the relocation scheme and more specifically at the decision of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on the actions of Hungary and Slovakia who voted against the adoption of the mandatory relocation scheme and brought the issue before the ECJ with the aim of having the relocation scheme annulled. As it stands now, the relocation programme, which ran up to 26 September, has seen less than 30,000 individuals relocated in two years. It is to be expected that there will not be a renewal of the scheme that was previously in place. Rather, discussions on how to organize relocation will likely be continued in the context of the reform of the CEAS.

Other key highlights of this Policy Update include:

+ The progress of the EU cooperation with third countries;

+ The mid-term review of the Agenda on Migration and the update of the Schengen Border Code;

+ A closer look from FEANTSA on homelessness among EU citizens living in the UK;

+ Relevant reports such as the Council of Europe's report on the situation in the Greek hotspots;

+ Funding opportunities and facts and figures.

IOM, the UN Migration Agency has launched its new Missing Migrants Project website: https://missingmigrants.iom.int/. The Missing Migrants Project tracks migrants, including refugees and asylum-seekers, who have died or gone missing while migrating to an international destination.

The site has been redesigned to be more user-friendly. New functions include:

Member States still struggling with migration situation till sidans topp

The migrant situation continues to challenge a number of EU Member States, according to the latest issue of FRA's monthly report on migration-related issues. Some reception facilities are in a poor state, and the lack of resources is testing Member States responses, putting migrant children particularly at risk.

Some of the main areas of fundamental rights-related concerns identified in the latest summary report include:

1 A tightening of border policies is limiting access to asylum in some Member States. This includes shorter time frames for registering asylum applications. In addition, procedures are often lengthy with little access to counselling and information about rights and how to apply for asylum.

2 Some reception centres still face problems with overcrowding and conditions remain poor. The extreme summer heat in some regions also posed a problem due to a lack of protection from the heat. NGOs also reported alleged incidents of police violence and intimidation.

3 Child protection remains a worry. Guardianship systems continue to be under-resourced and over-burdened in many Member States with unaccompanied children in particular being kept in poor conditions and being made to wait over 15 months to be interviewed in some instances. The number of children reported missing from reception centres also continues to be a concern.

Responses to high numbers of arrivals still causing concern till sidans topp

Responses by some EU Member States to continuing high numbers of arrivals in Europe remain a cause for concern, according to the latest issue of FRA's monthly report on migration-related issues.

1. With new arrivals to Italy remaining high, reaching some 22,470 persons in June, the Italian government announced that the country may consider closing its ports to ships engaged in search and rescue operations as accommodation of new arrivals cannot be guaranteed. In other developments, Greek NGOs, the UNHCR and the Council of Europe's Commissioner for Human Rights expressed deep concerns over alleged pushbacks at the Greek-Turkish land border, and the Greek Ombudsman ordered an investigation of alleged forced returns of Turkish citizens by Greek authorities to Turkey.

2. The number of asylum applications also remains high in various EU Member States, with the Greek Asylum Service registering some 4,200 new applications for international protection in June. Germany received some 16,640 asylum applications in May, an increase of 12.1% compared to April. Also in Germany, several human rights and welfare organisations demanded an improvement of the non-governmental and independent support structures for applicants of asylum and refugees after an internal investigation of 2,000 asylum decisions revealed severe deficiencies in the procedure.

3. The number of forced returns in some Member States remains high, with more than 700 forced returns from Greece conducted by the Hellenic Police in June, compared with close to 420 returns under the IOM Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration programme over the same period. (...)

4. Reception conditions emain a concern, in particular the formation of informal camps, overcrowding, violence and poor living conditions were reported in in a number of countries.

PDF report: Realising the right to family reunification of refugees in Europe till sidans topp

In the case of refugees, broadly understood, the right to respect for their family life requires swift and effective family reunification.

For refugees, the right to family reunification is crucial because separation from their family members causes significant anxiety and is widely recognised as a barrier to successful integration in host countries. Well-designed family reunification policies also help create the safe and legal routes that are necessary to prevent dangerous, irregular journeys to and within Europe.

Despite the importance of facilitating family reunification for both refugees and European states, the trend is now towards imposing greater restrictions in this area. This paper assesses restrictions on the right to family reunification, as enshrined in United Nations human rights treaties, the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and European Union law, and shows that many of the legal and practical restrictions currently in place raise concerns from a human rights perspective.

Based on this analysis, the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights sets out a number of recommendations to member states intended to assist national authorities in re-examining their laws, policies and practices in order to give full effect to the right to family reunification, for the benefit of both refugees and their host communities.
