Bilateral readmission agreements

Bilateral readmission agreements

Little is known about how international international law instruments, including bilateral readmission agreements - influence the return of irregular migrants, including asylum seekers whose applications were rejected. EMN's starting point to contribute to closing this knowledge gap was to update, verify and expand existing information on bilateral readmission readmission agreements by EU Member States and Norway.

Specifically this report examines the implementation, monitoring and evaluation and effectiveness of bilateral readmission agreements signed by EU Member States. It supplements existing data by examining the bilateral readmission agreements that were signed or entered into force in the period 2014-2020 in the EU Member States and Norway, as well as their scope and characteristics in terms of issue linkage.

And secondly, the report explores the situation in which beneficiaries of international protection, already recognized in a first State, submit applications for international protection in a second State.
