EMN Study ““Changing Influx of Asylum Seekers 2014-2016”, September 2018

In 2014-2016, EU Member States and Norway experienced an unprecedented influx of incoming applicants for international protection: the number of applications for international protection lodged rose from 443 015 in 2013 to peak at 1 320 000 million in 2015 and 1 260 000 million in 2016, though the scale and timing of the peaks differed greatly across European countries. The mass influx led to backlogs of registrations of international protection applications, pressures on reception centres, and other operational and organisational challenges. The Synthesis Report introduce what kind of initiatives EU Member States and Norway implemented to tackle the unprecedented increase in asylum applications and which kind of iniatives were considered to be the most effective. What lesson have been learnt from this unparalleled situation to build preparedness for the future. The EMN Study on “Changing Influx of Asylum Seekers 2014-2016” explains how 24 EU Member States (also Slovenia) and Norway responded to the migration crisis in their country by providing an overview of the changes to national strategies, approaches and measures in response to these unprecedented migratory movements.
