FRA and European Court of Human Rights launch updated guide to European asylum law

After the success of the first edition, FRA and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) will launch an update of their guide to European law on asylum, borders and immigration. As well as updating the material contained in the handbook published last year, the guide is being made available in a further five languages.

The Handbook on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration is the first comprehensive guide to European law in the areas of asylum, borders and immigration, and builds on the experience of a previous joint project between the two institutions. The first edition of the guide was welcomed in particular by lawyers, judges and immigration practitioners, who work on such issues on an everyday basis. Altogether, the handbook has so far been downloaded approximately 26,000 times from the FRA and ECtHR websites.
