Course Overview

The Dublin Convention is a piece of European law that has two main aims: to establish a common framework for determining which country in the European Union (countries which are part of the European Union are known as member states) decides an asylum seeker’s application

The Dublin regime was originally established by the Dublin Convention, on 15 June 1990, and first came into force on 1 September 1997 in order to ensure that only one member state should process each asylum application. The Dublin II Regulation was adopted in 2003, replacing the Dublin Convention. The Dublin III Regulation (No. 604/2013) was approved in June 2013, replacing the Dublin II Regulation

Given the Refugee Crisis in the EU in the last two years the Dublin Convention has suffered a crisis of existence given the stance taken by Germany to accept 1 million plus refugees and other countries building walls across EU borders.

This course looks at the types of challenges under the Dublin Convention and in particular reference to the development of the case law EU Wide.
