The Protection of Refugees in Multi-Jurisdiction Europe

The project asks how the realization of refugee rights is affected by these challenges and how they influence the implementation and application of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. The project focuses on the cooperation of EU Member States in the Common European Asylum System; on the relationship between the European Convention on Human Rights and the Refugee Convention; on the interplay between UNHCR, the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union; and on the cooperation between the EU and third countries in the control of refugee movements.
