Annual Report on the Situation of Asylum in the European Union 2012

The 2012 Annual Report on the Situation of Asylum in the European Union aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the requests for international protection made in the EU and how Member States dealt with them, important asylum-related developments at EU and national level, and the functioning of all key aspects of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS).

In the third chapter the Resettlement process in Europe is addressed, with useful charts comparing figures among the European countries in the past five years. The active role of local Municipalities throughout Europe is also highlighted, with reference to the ‘Linking-In EU Resettlement’ project and the European Resettlement Network launched by UNHCR, IOM and ICMC.
