EASO network discusses asylum seekers’ vulnerability

FRA took part in the EASO vulnerability network annual conference, which took place through four online meetings during September.

The annual conference allowed national authorities, civil society and European organisations to discuss ongoing challenges and good practices when it comes to the reception and asylum procedures of vulnerable people. 

They underlined worsening mental health, increasing domestic violence, missing children and the challenge conducting asylum interviews during the pandemic. 

The discussions identified priority areas, which EASO and the vulnerability network will incorporate into future work.
