Chapter Summary

Council Directive 2001/55/EC on the minimum standards for giving temporary protection in the event of a mass influx of displaced persons and on measures promoting a balance of efforts between Member States in receiving and bearing the consequences was the first of the asylum measures. The central question in respect of the temporary protection Directive is compatibility with the 1951 Convention on the Status of Refugees and other international human rights obligations. The subsequent adoption of further Community legislation casts in doubt even the ability of Member States to create new temporary protection schemes that set higher standards than Directive 2001/55. This chapter discusses articles of Council Directive 2001/55/EC of 20 July 2001 on minimum standards for giving temporary protection in the event of a mass influx of displaced persons and on measures promoting a balance of efforts between Member States in receiving such persons and bearing the consequences.
