Quality of the asylum procedure

As a result of the implementation of the EU-Turkey “deal” and successive legislative reforms to dismantle procedural safeguards and speed up returns of asylum-seekers to Turkey, an increasing number of individuals in need of international protection face an increasing risk of deportation. Among the detrimental reforms introduced in the past year are provisions restricting access to the appeal procedure.

RSA continues to offer legal support to asylum-seekers to challenge negative asylum decisions and deportation orders before national authorities and courts in all instances. It also represents asylum-seekers whose claim has been rejected on that basis before the European Court of Human Rights and other international Bodies.

RSA conducts legal analysis and advocacy on functioning and quality asylum procedures before national and international fora. Both individually and in collaboration with other civil society organisations, it actively contributes with analysis and recommendations to improving legislative reforms.
