Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Executive Committee Conclusion No. 93 (LIII) 2002 on Reception of Asylum-Seekers in the context of Individual Asylum Systems. There is a need to establish and apply fair and expeditious asylum procedures, so as to identify promptly those in need of international protection and those who are not, which will avoid protracted periods of uncertainty for the asylum-seeker, discourage misuse of the asylum system and decrease the overall demands on the reception system. While there is scope for flexibility in the choice of reception arrangements to be put in place, it is important that the various reception measures respect human dignity and applicable international human rights law and standards.
