On 3 June, Kris Pollet, ECRE’s Senior Legal and Policy Officer, will participate at a public hearing: ‘Beyond Dublin: Rethinking Europe’s Asylum System’, organised by the Greens and European Free Alliance at the European Parliament. Participants will discuss alternatives to the Dublin Regulation, which determines the Member State responsible for the examination of an asylum application in the EU.
During the conference, political controversy and flaws of the Dublin regulation will be pointed out by, among other speakers, Philippe De Bruycker, Professor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles and Odysseus Network, Madeline Garlick, researcher at the Migration Policy Institute and Stefan Kessler, of the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS).
In response of these challenges, ECRE’s view will propose, together with studies presented by Richard Williams and Cathryn Costello, Professor at the Oxford University, alternatives for a fair asylum system both for asylum seekers and Member States.
