European return policies: No Safety in Numbers


ECRE, 1 December 2017

This links to a policy note by ECRE (the European Council on Refugees and Exiles, a NGO umbrella organisation) analysing EU return policies and a Case Study on returns to Afghanistan identifying the risks, and the ethical, legal and political implications of a narrow focus on increasing the number of returns in general and in the specific context of Afghanistan.

The ECRE Case Study recommends specific measures on returns to Afghanistan including EASO taking into account the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan and analysing practice in countries with low recognition rates to ensure compliance with international refugee law.
