FRA presents asylum, borders and immigration handbook to the EU Council

On 18 July, FRA will present the handbook on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration to the Council Working Party on Frontiers - a Council preparatory body that deals with legislation related to border control issues.

This is the second edition of the handbook, jointly produced by the European Court of Human Rights and the FRA. It examines the relevant laws in the field of asylum, borders and immigration from the European Union and the Council of Europe. The handbook is now available in Bulgarian, Croatian, English, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Romanian and Spanish. Further translations will follow later this year, aiming to make the handbook accessible to policy makers and practitioners in the EU Member States.
