Handbook on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration

Publicated on: October 13, 2014

The Handbook on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration is jointly produced by the European Court of Human Rights and the FRA. It examines the relevant law in the field of asylum, borders and immigration stemming from both European systems: the European Union and the Council of Europe. It provides an accessible guide to the various European standards relevant to asylum, borders and immigration.

The European Convention on Human Rights and European Union law provide an increasingly important framework for the protection of the rights of foreigners. European Union legislation relating to asylum, borders and immigration is developing fast. There is an impressive body of case law by the European Court of Human Rights relating in particular to Articles 3, 5, 8 and 13 of the ECHR. The Court of Justice of the European Union is increasingly asked to pronounce itself on the interpretation of European Union law provisions in this field. This handbook presents this European Union legislation and the body of case law by the two European courts in an accessible way.

It is intended for legal practitioners, judges, prosecutors, immigration officials and nongovernmental organisations, in the EU and Council of Europe Member States.
