The EASO Practical guide: Qualification for international protection is intended as a practical tool accompanying case officers across the European Union and beyond in their daily work.
The starting point for this guide is the legal provisions of the 1951 Geneva Convention and the qualification directive (Directive 2011/95/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 13 December 2011 on standards for the qualification of third-country nationals or stateless persons as beneficiaries of international protection, for a uniform status for refugees or for persons eligible for subsidiary protection, and for the content of the protection granted). The guide goes a step further and translates those legal requirements into guidance for practitioners.
