LIBE Committee hearing on asylum & resettlement

On 20 October aditus Director Dr. Neil Falzon delivered a presentation during an asylum and resettlement hearing organised by the European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE).  The hearing gathered several professionals, academics and NGOs in order to raise and discuss important technical elements relevant to the on-going negotiations on the Common European Asylum System (CEAS).

Neil’s presentation was delivered during the panel discussing ‘Access to an effective remedy’, where he focused on the various scenarios where asylum-seekers are faced with administrative decisions against which they should be able to have access to effective remedies.  Examples given were age assessment procedure, reception conditions, Dublin II transfers, the asylum procedure and access to territory.

The entire hearing was aired live, with the videos available on the Committee’s site.  All presentations, including Neil’s, will also shortly be available on the site.
