Judging the Charter

The Charter in judicial practise with a special focus on the case of protection of refugees and asylum seekers

An Introduction to the Common European Asylum System for Courts and Tribunals. A Judicial Analysis


This material was produced by the International Association of Refugee Law Judges European Chapter under contract to EASO.

The Analysis is primarily intended for use by members of courts and tribunals of EU Member States concerned with hearing appeals or conducting reviews of decisions on applications for international protection. It aims to assist not only those with little or no experience but also those who have more expertise. As such, it aims to be a useful point of reference for all members of courts and tribunals concerned in the hearing of cases or actions to which the CEAS applies. The structure, format, content and design have, therefore, been developed with this broad audience in mind.

The Analysis is designed to provide an introduction to the CEAS that assists courts and tribunals in the carrying out of their role and responsibilities in its implementation.
