The EPIM-funded Asylum Information Database (European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE)) has released a report on the inability of reception systems to adapt to higher numbers of asylum seekers, which is a structural challenge throughout Europe.


Vulnerable persons such as unaccompanied children have been unduly subjected to detention due to the unavailability of appropriate reception places. “The controversial EU-Turkey deal has come as another severe blow to states’ obligations to provide dignified living conditions to those seeking asylum in Europe”, says Minos Mouzourakis, AIDA Coordinator. The report also documents discrimination faced by asylum seekers of certain nationalities in the reception context.
