Protection Interrupted

The impact of the Dublin Regulation on asylum seekers

Through the Protection Interrupted project (DIASP), JRS Europe carried out a research on how the Dublin Regulation affects the fundamental human rights of asylum seekers. Its report Protection Interrupted, published in 2013, is the result of interviews with 257 asylum seekers in 10 EU countries in the ‘Dublin system’.

The research uncovered the divergent asylum procedures and basic conditions found in EU countries. The main finding was people would feel better protected if they could influence the decisions governments take on their asylum cases.
