The Irish Refugee Council is organising a conference on the Common European Asylum System on 17 & 18 January in Dublin.
“The European Database of Asylum Law is a key legal tool complementing the numerous endeavours seeking to strengthen the development of harmonized standards of protection within the Common European Asylum System. As we enter the second phase of the CEAS, this Conference provides a space to critically and constructively reflect on the reality of the achievements of the CEAS to date and to consider the potential for greater levels of protection and harmonisation in the future. The Conference aims to afford participants ample opportunity to compare and contrast the current application of EU measures across Member States.” (Conference Programme, p.1)
Among the topics to be discussed is the judicial use of Country of Origin Information in asylum appeals.
