Question reference: E-004642/2018

The elements that should be assessed when processing an asylum application as well as the methods for such an assessment are detailed in Article 4 of the Qualification Directive(1). Recital 16 thereof clearly states that the legislative act (and therefore the implementation of all its elements) seeks to ensure full respect for human dignity.

In its judgment A, B, C (Joined Cases C-148/13 to C-150/13) — specifically referring to LGBTI persons — the European Court of Justice provided guidelines regarding how the assessment of applications made by LGBTI persons should be conducted, setting clear limits regarding the methods of assessment(2).

The abovementioned case-law provides clear elements for the Member States.

(1)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 (OJ L 337, 20.12.2011, p. 9).
(2)See paragraphs 64 and 65.
