Asylum Procedures Directive

Asylum Procedures Directive in Europe

Asylum Procedures Directive in the Context of the Refugee Crisis

A component of the Common European Asylum System. It sets out procedures in the EU for determining applications for international protection. The original directive, which continues to apply until July 2015 (and will still apply after that date in the UK and the Republic of Ireland), was introduced in 2005. The full title of the recast directive is Directive 2013/32/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on common procedures for granting and withdrawing international protection (recast). It will come into force on 21 July 2015. The recast directive contains a reference to frontloading.
