The recognition rate refers to the number of positive outcomes as a percentage of the total number of decisions on applications for international protection. The recognition rate for specific nationalities of applicants can indicate which profiles are granted protection more frequently and which are rejected.
Positive decisions calculated in the recognition rate include refugee status, subsidiary protection and humanitarian protection. The rights and terms associated with refugee status tend to be more favourable than for subsidiary protection. In particular, subsidiary protection often does not allow for family reunification. Humanitarian status is a national form of protection, but it is not granted in all EU+ countries in the framework of the asylum procedure.
