    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.

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

Les tuteurs sont une composante essentielle d’un système de protection des enfants qui sont, de façon temporaire ou permanente, privés de leur milieu familial et qui ne peuvent pas faire représenter leurs intérêts par leurs parents. De fortes disparités existent entre les types de tutelle dont les enfants bénéficient, tant entre les États membres de l’Union européenne qu’au sein même de ces pays. Ce rapport explore les principales caractéristiques des régimes de tutelle mis en place pour satisfaire aux besoins de tous les enfants qui nécessitent une protection, notamment les enfants victimes de la traite des personnes, ou d’autres formes d’exploitation, ainsi que ceux qui sont exposés au risque de le devenir.
