ECRE’s information note on the Qualification Directive (recast)

ECRE Information Note on the 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

ECRE’s note provides information on how to transpose and implement the recast Qualification Directive in a manner which ensures full consistency with international human rights and refugee law.

ECRE concluded that the recast Qualification Directive represents a significant improvement in the compliance of EU law standards with international human rights and refugee law obligations and the case law of the CJEU and ECtHR. However, depending on its interpretation and application, the recast Directive may still allow for gaps in the protection of applicants and beneficiaries of international protection. Therefore, in accordance with this information note and the continuing evolution of international and European asylum law jurisprudence, Member States should ensure that they utilise their power to adopt more favourable standards under Article 3 of the recast Directive.
