Qualification Directive

Qualification Directive in Europe

Qualification Directive in the Context of Asylum Law

A component of the Common European Asylum System. It establishes common grounds to grant international protection and therefore refers to both refugee status and subsidiary protection. The original directive of 2004 was transposed into domestic law by 2006 and it continues to apply in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. It was recast and replaced in 2011 and the new directive is in force from 21 December 2013 in those countries to which it applies including Estonia. The full title is DIRECTIVE 2011/95/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 13 December 2011 on standards for the qualification of third-country nationals or stateless persons as beneficiaries of international protection, for a uniform status for refugees or for persons eligible for subsidiary protection, and for the content of the protection granted (recast).
