    This bulletin looks at the fundamental rights situation of all persons fleeing the Russian war in Ukraine to the four EU Member States neighbouring Ukraine. This is primarily in terms of the application of the EU Temporary Protection Directive. It is based on findings of FRA’s field mission to Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia at the beginning of March 2022. It is also based on weekly country reports prepared by Franet, the contracted research network of FRA between 1 March and 27 April 2022.

    The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) regularly collects data on the operations of NGO vessels involved in search and rescue in the Mediterranean. This includes any legal proceedings against them, as well as on any difficulties in disembarking migrants in safe ports. The International Organization for Migration estimates that from January to 15 June 2022 about 842 people died or went missing while crossing the Mediterranean Sea to reach Europe to escape war or persecution, or to pursue a better life. This is an average of five people per day.

    Die Europäische Menschenrechtskonvention (EMRK) und das Recht der Europäischen Union
    bieten einen zunehmend bedeutenden Rahmen für den Schutz der Rechte von Ausländern.
    Das Unionsrecht zu Asyl, Grenzen und Einwanderung entwickelt sich in hoher Geschwindigkeit
    weiter. Der Umfang der Rechtsprechung des Europäischen Gerichtshofs für Menschenrechte,
    insbesondere zu den Artikeln 3, 5, 8 und 13 EMRK, ist beträchtlich. Der Gerichtshof
    der Europäischen Union wird immer häufiger aufgefordert, sich zur Auslegung der diesbezüglichen
    Bestimmungen des EU-Rechts zu äußern. Die dritte Ausgabe dieses Handbuchs
    wurde im Juli 2020 fertiggestellt. Es stellt das Unionsrecht sowie die Rechtsprechung der
    beiden europäischen Gerichtshöfe auf verständliche Art und Weise vor.

    Council of Europe (CoE) and European Union (EU) Member States have an undeniable sovereign right to control the entry of non-nationals into their territory. While exercising border control, states have a duty to protect the fundamental rights of all people under their jurisdiction, regardless of their nationality and/or legal status. Under EU law, this includes providing access to asylum procedures.

In 2018, some 2,299 people are estimated to have died or gone missing at sea while crossing the sea to reach Europe to escape war or persecution or to pursue a better life. This is on average more than six people per day. Before mid-2017, a significant share of migrants in distress at sea have been rescued by civil society vessels deployed with a humanitarian mandate to reduce fatalities and bring rescued migrants to safety. In 2018, however, authorities in some Member States viewed civil society-deployed rescue vessels with hostility. As a reaction, they seized rescue vessels, arrested crew members, and initiated legal procedures against them (more than a dozen altogether). In some cases, rescue vessels were blocked in harbours due to flag issues.

Der Leitfaden Kinder ohne elterliche Fürsorge, die in einem anderen EU-Mitgliedstaat als ihrem
eigenen angetroffen werden hat das Ziel, die Handlungsfähigkeit aller im Bereich Kinderschutz
tätigen Akteure zu stärken. Der Schutz dieser Mädchen und Jungen ist von höchster Bedeutung und
stellt für die EU-Mitgliedstaaten eine Verpflichtung dar, die sich aus dem internationalen und dem
europäischen Rechtsrahmen ableitet. Der vorliegende Leitfaden legt den Schwerpunkt auf Kinder,
die Opfer von Menschenhandel geworden sind oder Gefahr laufen, dies zu werden, indem auf die
Umsetzung der Ziele eingegangen wird, die in der Mitteilung der Kommission zur Berichterstattung
über die Folgemaßnahmen zur Strategie der EU zur Beseitigung des Menschenhandels von
2017 beschrieben wurden. Dabei werden ermittelte Muster beleuchtet, auch im Hinblick auf die
geschlechtsspezifischen Besonderheiten von Straftaten.

Severe labour exploitation is widespread across the European Union. While workplace inspections can help counter this phenomenon, they need to be strengthened to do so effectively. Based on interviews and focus group discussions with almost 240 exploited workers active in diverse economic sectors, this report provides important evidence on how unscrupulous employers manipulate and undermine inspections, and on what can be done to counteract such efforts.
