Chapter Summary

Council Regulation 343/2003 establishing the criteria and mechanisms for determining the Member State responsible for examining an asylum application lodged in one of the Member States by a third country national was adopted by Council on 18 February 2003. The legal issues arising from the Regulation relate to its interrelationship with the European Convention on Human Rights and its compatibility with the 1951 UN Geneva Convention on the Status of Refugees and other international instruments. The increasing use of readmission agreements will inevitably increase the risks of refoulement in breach of obligations under the Geneva Convention, particularly due to the weakness of mechanisms to ensure that such obligations are met. This chapter discusses a list of articles of Council Regulation (EC) No 343/2003 of 18 February 2003.

Keywords: application; asylum; council regulation; Geneva convention; human rights; legal issues; member state; refugees
