Annual European asylum and migration law conference

FRA gave a presentation on enhancing the role of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in asylum matters during the Academy of European Law’s (ERA) annual conference on European asylum and migration law.

It also was a panellist in a discussion on using artificial intelligence at Schengen borders and the fundamental rights implications.

The conference took place from 19 to 20 October in Trier.

Some 60 participants attended. They came from government bodies and national asylum authorities, asylum lawyers and judges in national courts. Staff of EU institutions and other EU entities as well as NGOs also attended.

FRA provided material for the package of participants’ online training. These include its guidance on applying the Charter in law and policymaking at national level, its handbooks on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration and on European law relating to child rights, together with its general guidance on establishing national independent border monitoring mechanisms and other practical guidance relating to ensuring fundamental rights compliance at external borders.
