    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.

their participation in these procedures. This report provides important insights and identifies the implications of collecting
children’s biometric data and conducting age assessments.

The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has regularly reported on these issues since September 2015.

Vormünder sind zentral in einem System zum Schutz von Kindern, die vorübergehend oder dauerhaft aus ihrem familiären Umfeld herausgelöst wurden und deren Interessen nicht von ihren Eltern vertreten werden können. Zwischen den Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Union (EU) und auch innerhalb der Mitgliedstaaten gibt es große Unterschiede in den Arten von Vormundschaft. Dieser Bericht untersucht die wesentlichen Merkmale von Vormundschaftssystemen, die den Bedürfnissen schutzbedürftiger Kinder gerecht werden sollen. Dies schließt Kinder ein, die Opfer von Menschenhandel und anderen Formen der Ausbeutung sind, und Kinder, die Gefahr laufen, Opfer von Menschenhandel oder anderen Formen der Ausbeutung zu werden.

More than 20 million immigrants lived in the European Union in 2016. This means that 1 person in 25 was an immigrant. Having more immigrants and refugees makes it even more important for the governments to have plans to help them to integrate.
This survey involved interviews with 25,515 people with different ethnic minority and immigrant backgrounds across 28 EU countries. It explores issues concerning discrimination as well as experiences of harassment, hate-motivated violence and discriminatory profiling.
This infographic illustrates the main experiences immigrants and ethnic minorities across the EU have when it comes to discrimination. It draws from the findings from FRA's EU-MIDIS II survey.
