    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.

    ‘Hotspots’ are facilities set up at the EU’s external border in Greece and Italy for the initial reception, identification and registration of asylum seekers and other migrants coming to the EU by sea. They also serve to channel newly-arrived people into international protection, return or other procedures.

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.

Workers are being severely exploited for their labour across the EU, and
inspections are not effective at stopping this reality. Based on interviews with
almost 240 workers – including non-EU citizens who came to the EU and
EU nationals who moved to another EU country to work – a new FRA report
outlines the problem and identifies ways to bolster inspections.

The stories of the domestic workers FRA interviewed for this paper reveal appalling working conditions and fundamental rights abuses in private homes across the EU. These stories indicate that, seven years on from FRA’s first report on domestic workers in 2011, little has changed in terms of the risks and experiences of severe labour exploitation domestic workers in the EU face.

The year 2017 brought both progress and setbacks in terms of rights protection. The European Pillar of Social Rights marked an important move towards a more ‘social Europe’. But, as experiences with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights underscore, agreement on a text is merely a first step. Even in its eighth year as the EU's binding bill of rights, the Charter's potential was not fully exploited, highlighting the need to more actively promote its use.

The methods used to determine the age of
an applicant may include “invasive” medical tests which interfere with the rights of the child, including their right to dignity,
integrity and privacy. It is often a challenge to find the right balance between protecting children from harm and promoting
their participation in these procedures. This report provides important insights and identifies the implications of collecting
children’s biometric data and conducting age assessments.
