The deadline set for the establishment of the Common European Asylum System is 2012. With the adoption of recast EU asylum instruments, a “second phase” of transposition of the EU asylum acquis will start. In this context, the AIDA – Asylum Information Database project aims to provide advocacy tools to civil society actors, both at EU and national level. It also seeks to offer independent, useful, and up-to date information on asylum policies and practices in 14 EU Member States to the media, researchers, advocates, legal practitioners and the public.
To achieve this, a database including country reports will be developed and a shadow report on the state of asylum in Europe will be published yearly. In addition, ECRE and its media network will strengthen their media strategy and the tools developed will support coordinated advocacy work at EU and national level. Through these activities, all partners involved hope to influence Member states to reflect the highest possible protection standards in their implementation of EU legislation.
