Information Note on Syrian Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Europe

The Information Note on Syrian Asylum Seekers and Refugees in Europe by ECRE and the European Legal Network on Asylum (ELENA) provides an overview of selected country practices towards those fleeing the Syrian conflict and claiming asylum in Europe. The Note focuses on protection rates and types of protection status granted, access to asylum procedures, detention practices, reception conditions, rules on family reunification, resettlement programmes, and return policies for Syrian asylum seekers across 21 different European countries. The geographical breadth of the analysis enables the Note to make a useful contribution to the commentary on Europe’s response to the Syrian refugee crisis.
