On 17-18 January, FRA attended a conference organised by the Irish Refugee Council on “Reflections on the current application of the EU asylum acquis”.

The event was part of the European Database of Asylum Law project, which set up a database of national case law relating to the EU asylum acquis. Participants had a high degree of expertise and included UNHCR, NGO workers, lawyers, judges and academics. FRA presented aspects of its sea borders report and its handbook on asylum, borders and immigration law.
