Chapter Summary

Readmission agreements intend to enable an orderly management of the return of immigrants. Academics and members of civil society widely consider readmission agreements as raising issues of international refugee protection. This chapter examines these issues in relation to the common readmission policy. It first outlines concerns of international refugee protection raised by readmission agreements. These pertain in particular to the expulsion of protection seekers to third countries. The chapter then identifies a series of obligations of international law, constituting the international legal framework regarding the expulsion of protection seekers from European Union (EU) Member States to third countries. It also determines whether Community readmission agreements are in accordance with these obligations. Finally, the chapter reviews the legality of the common safe third country policy in light of those obligations.
