We are delighted to welcome you to the second issue of the EASO Newsletter for this year.
Take a tour and navigate through our pages in order to read our latest news and developments, as well as to find out how EASO has continued to deliver on its mandate despite the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as how we have quickly adapted to a ‘new normal’.
Meet Dr. David Costello, Chair of the EASO Management Board, Maria and Maya, EASO Field Support Officers in Greece, and get updated on EASO’s work in third countries.
Specific to the challenges faced by national asylum authorities due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we recently issued practical recommendations on remote personal interviews and on lodging remote registration. Read about how these recommendations have provided Member States with concrete support in extraordinary circumstances, so as to facilitate the return to normal asylum procedures.
Most recently, on 25 June, we published the EASO Asylum Report 2020; the flagship annual report which serves as a main reference for developments in asylum in EU+ countries.
Last but not least, have a look at the latest developments in EASO’s training activities and check out our latest publications.
We wish you an enjoyable reading!
