Responding to a request by the European Commission, FRA has collected weekly data on the situation of people in need of international protection arriving in eight Member States along the ‘Balkan route’.
FRA took part in the 8th Frontex Consultative Forum meeting on 5 November in Warsaw. Discussions during the Forum focused on the areas of operations, return and training vis-a-vis the expected changes to the Frontex mandate.
On 28 October, FRA took part in a kick-off meeting for operational coordination in return procedures, organised by Frontex. Representatives from the European Commission, the European Asylum Support Office and the three main EU Member States-managed return projects took part.
