Annual report on the situation of asylum in the EU

EASO’s Annual Report on the Situation of Asylum in the European Union provides a comprehensive overview of the number and nature of applications for international protection in all 28 EU Member States plus Norway and Switzerland (the EU+). It examines asylum trends, including key challenges and responses during the year, major institutional and legal developments, and provides an overview of the practical functioning of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS). Input is provided by EU+ countries, UNHCR, civil society, information specialists and field officers.

The report looks at developments throughout the year, such as the EU Relocation Programme, reception capacity in EU+ countries, developments in national asylum systems and EASO’s support via training and operational plans. Significant asylum-related legal judgments handed down across Europe are also outlined. Additionally, key information on asylum trends is provided via EASO’s Early Warning and Preparedness System (EPS) as well as Eurostat data. This provides accurate, timely and complete monitoring of the practical functioning of the CEAS via a swift data collection and rapid analysis. 

As such, EASO’s Annual Report is an essential reference point on migration for asylum experts, Member States, civil society, media and the general public.
