Resettlement of refugees: EU framework

29-03-2019

Resettlement is one tool to help displaced persons in need of protection reach Europe safely and legally, and receive protection for as long as necessary. It is a durable solution which includes selection and transfer of refugees from a country where they seek protection to another country. Apart from providing international protection to refugees, its aim is also to strengthen solidarity and responsibility-sharing between countries.

Resettlement is one tool to help displaced persons in need of protection reach Europe safely and legally, and receive protection for as long as necessary. It is a durable solution which includes selection and transfer of refugees from a country where they seek protection to another country. Apart from providing international protection to refugees, its aim is also to strengthen solidarity and responsibility-sharing between countries. For a resettlement to take place, the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has to determine an applicant is a refugee according to the 1951 Geneva Convention, and has to identify resettlement as the most appropriate solution. On 13 July 2016, as part of the reform of the Common European Asylum System and the long-term policy on better migration management, the Commission presented a proposal which aims to provide for a permanent framework with standard common procedures for resettlement across the EU, and will complement current national and multilateral resettlement initiatives. Although a partial provisional agreement on the proposal was reached between the Parliament and Council in summer 2018, the Council has been unable to endorse that, nor agree on a mandate for further negotiations.

EU consumer protection rules

10-07-2018

The IA is aimed at underpinning new legislation in the field of consumer protection, as called for in various European Parliament resolutions. It represents a considerable body of work, based on extensive evaluation and consultation. Methodological weaknesses include the narrow range of options to calibrate the evaluation findings. Secondly, there are some presentation issues, which do not facilitate consideration of the Commission’s choices. For instance, the large space devoted to consultation ...

French President Emmanuel Macron has proposed an ambitious reform plan, but Germany, the euro area’s economic powerhouse, is more cautious.

In June, the Heads of State or Government of the countries sharing the euro currency will discuss ways to improve the functioning of the euro area. French President Emmanuel Macron has proposed an ambitious reform plan, but Germany, the euro area’s economic powerhouse, is more cautious. Despite continued growth, after years of stagnation, the euro area needs better governance to meet future challenges, economic analysts say. They add that recent political developments in Italy may complicate the drive for reform, as could unstable political situations elsewhere. This note brings together commentaries, analyses and studies by major international think tanks and research institutes on challenges facing the euro area and related issues. Earlier publications on the topic can be found in a previous edition of 'What Think Tanks are Thinking' published in December 2017.

Further harmonising EU insolvency law from a banking resolution perspective?

28-05-2018

Further to recent resolution and liquidation cases experienced in the Banking Union, both the Single Resolution Mechanism (SRM) and the Single Supervision Mechanism (SSM) have called for further harmonisation of insolvency law. In April 2018, the SRB stressed that “the divergence of national insolvency laws is a major obstacle towards a fully-fledged Banking Union”. As part of the SRM review due by 31 December 2018, the Commission shall “evaluate the necessity of taking steps order to harmonise insolvency ...

In April 2018, the SRB stressed that “the divergence of national insolvency laws is a major obstacle towards a fully-fledged Banking Union”. As part of the SRM review due by 31 December 2018, the Commission shall “evaluate the necessity of taking steps order to harmonise insolvency proceedings for failed institution”. This briefing explains why the completion of the Banking Union may need to be underpinned by further progress in harmonising Member States’ insolvency law. This briefing takes a ‘banking resolution’ perspective, and does not specifically address initiatives that the Commission has taken to improve the efficiency of Member States’ insolvency law framework (See separate EGOV briefing “Completing the Banking Union”).
