Chapter Summary

This chapter serves as an introduction to the description to the rules on international protection laid down in secondary European law and to the analysis of how the rules relate to international law on asylum. It discusses how the several pieces of legislation that concern asylum relate to each other and addresses some topics they have in common, such as the definition of the objectives and aspects of their personal and geographical scopes. The notion of a "Common European Asylum System" was introduced only in 1999 by the European Council in its Tampere Conclusions as the aim of this legislation. The Directives on Qualification, Procedures, Reception Standards and Temporary Protection as well as the Dublin Regulation all refer to the concept of the Common European Asylum System. Thus, it appeared that the Procedures Directive determines the geographical scope of the Qualification Directive.

Keywords: Common European Asylum System; dublin regulation; international protection; Qualification Directive; tampere conclusions
