    This bulletin looks at the fundamental rights situation of all persons fleeing the Russian war in Ukraine to the four EU Member States neighbouring Ukraine. This is primarily in terms of the application of the EU Temporary Protection Directive. It is based on findings of FRA’s field mission to Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia at the beginning of March 2022. It is also based on weekly country reports prepared by Franet, the contracted research network of FRA between 1 March and 27 April 2022.

    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.

    La convention européenne des droits de l’homme (CEDH) et la législation de l’Union européenne
    (UE) fournissent un cadre de plus en plus important pour la protection des droits
    des ressortissants étrangers. La législation de l’UE relative à l’asile, aux frontières et à l’immigration
    se développe rapidement. Il existe un impressionnant corpus de jurisprudence de
    la Cour européenne des droits de l’homme qui porte, en particulier, sur les articles 3, 5, 8 et
    13 de la CEDH. La Cour de justice de l’Union européenne (CJUE) est également de plus en
    plus souvent appelée à se prononcer sur l’interprétation des dispositions de la législation de
    l’UE en la matière. La troisième édition du présent manuel, mise à jour jusqu’en juillet 2020,
    expose de manière accessible cette législation et la jurisprudence des deux cours européennes
    dans ce domaine.

    Les États membres du Conseil de l’Europe (CdE) et de l’Union européenne (UE) jouissent du droit indéniable de contrôler souverainement l’entrée des étrangers sur leur territoire. Dans l’exercice du contrôle de leurs frontières, les États ont le devoir de protéger les droits fondamentaux de toutes les personnes qui se trouvent sous leur juridiction, indépendamment de leur nationalité et/ou de leur situation juridique. Cela englobe la fourniture d’un accès aux procédures d’asile, conformément au droit de l’UE.

In 2018, some 2,299 people are estimated to have died or gone missing at sea while crossing the sea to reach Europe to escape war or persecution or to pursue a better life. This is on average more than six people per day. Before mid-2017, a significant share of migrants in distress at sea have been rescued by civil society vessels deployed with a humanitarian mandate to reduce fatalities and bring rescued migrants to safety. In 2018, however, authorities in some Member States viewed civil society-deployed rescue vessels with hostility. As a reaction, they seized rescue vessels, arrested crew members, and initiated legal procedures against them (more than a dozen altogether). In some cases, rescue vessels were blocked in harbours due to flag issues.

Le présent guide Enfants privés de protection parentale et devant être protégés dans un État
membre de l’UE autre que le leur vise à renforcer la réponse de l’ensemble des acteurs concernés en

obligation pour les États membres de l’UE, qui découle du cadre juridique international et européen.
Ce guide, qui met en oeuvre une action clé de la communication de 2017 visant à renforcer l’action
de l’UE en matière de lutte contre la traite des êtres humains, met particulièrement l’accent sur les
enfants victimes de la traite et sur les enfants vulnérables et tient compte des schémas recensés,
notamment en ce qui concerne les spécificités liées au genre de cette infraction.

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.
