APAIPA – protection and internal protection alternative in the EU

HHC is taking part in the promotion and pooling of best practices regarding the protection of vulnerable groups.

In the framework of the project Actors of Protection and Application of the Internal Protection Alternative (APAIPA), which is coordinated by the European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE), the HHC carried out research application of concepts of the actors of protection and internal protection alternative in the EU and promotion and pooling of good practices in the area.


The project, which started in January 2013, will contribute to the improved exchange of information and development of best practice between national asylum authorities, between them and other stakeholders (such as non-governmental organisations and international organisations) and between the latter, in addressing the needs of vulnerable persons, in particular minors, unaccompanied minors (with a view to implement the EU Action Plan on Unaccompanied Minors), victims of violence and torture, pregnant women, elderly people, disabled people, single parents, as well as people kept in prolonged detention, and people with serious medical needs, when implementing EU legislation and preparing for higher and more convergent standards of protection.
