ECRE: Guidelines on the Treatment of Chechen Asylum Seekers in Europe
On March 8th, the European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) published a report in response to concerns about the situation facing Chechen asylum seekers in Europe.
The report was prepared in response to the need of protection in Europe for Chechens, and is mainly based on information provided by the ECRE’s Member Agencies and partners. It highlights differences in the treatment of Chechens across Europe, security and protection concerns in several European countries, the negative impact of the Dublin Regulation on this group, the lack of information from the UNHCR on the situation in Russia, and provides an update on the human rights violations taking place in Chechnya itself.
Earlier we published an article about the report and its presentation in the press.
The entire report is available HERE.
