On 24 June 2019 (9:00 - 10:45), EASO will launch its Annual Report on the Situation of Asylum in the EU in Brussels, at the Residence Palace - Polak Room.
The launch of the Annual Report aims to highlight EASO’s main findings on the situation of asylum in the EU in 2018, including the latest data for 2019. Following the presentation on the main findings of the Report by EASO’s new Executive Director, Nina Gregori, a Question and Answer session will be held.
The EASO Annual Report on the Situation of Asylum in the EU 2018 is a reference document that aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the situation of asylum in the EU+ (including information on Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Iceland), describing and analysing flows of applicants for international protection, major developments in legislation, jurisprudence, and policies at EU+ and national level and reporting on the practical functioning of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS). As part of the Report, EASO also indicates its activities undertaken in 2018 in respective thematic areas.
The event will bring together policy makers, practitioners of the EU+ countries and relevant stakeholders of the EU institutions, international organisations, civil society, academia and the press.
