EASO published its 2013 work programme

The European Asylum Support Office (EASO) has recently published its work programme for 2013. During its third year of operations, EASO plans to further consolidate its operations. The European Union aims at putting in place a Common European Asylum System by the end of 2012. This makes 2013 a crucial year for the implementation of such a system. Within this context, EASO's main priorities for 2013 are: provide operational emergency support to the asylum system of Greece and other Member States in need; develop an EU tailor-made Early warning and Preparedness System on asylum, providing asylum trend analysis and risk scenarios; further develop high quality common asylum training across the EU; provide a common level of Country of Origin Information (COI) across the EU and issue regular COI reports; and consolidate the EASO organisation.
