Regular overviews of migration-related fundamental rights concerns

In view of the increasing numbers of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants entering the EU, the European Commission asked FRA to collect data about the fundamental rights situation of people arriving in Member States and EU candidate countries that have been particularly affected by large migration movements. The countries currently covered are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, North Macedonia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Serbia, Spain and Sweden.

From September 2015 FRA is regularly collecting data on migration-related fundamental rights concerns. The current issues include:

  • Key fundamental rights concerns   
  • Situation at the border       
  • Asylum procedure    
  • Return procedure     
  • Reception     
  • Child protection       
  • Immigration detention        
  • Legal, social and policy responses  
  • Hate speech and violent crime
