The Europe Chapter

The Europe Chapter of the IARMJ was the first of the regional chapters to be formed, addressing issues of particular concern to its members, including the European Convention on Human Rights, the co-ordination of interests of member states of the European Union, the enactment of the Qualification Directives and the creation of EASO.  The Chapter has been at the forefront of the development of refugee and migration law in Europe and works closely with partners such as UNHCR and EASO.

Le chapitre Europe de l'IARMJ a été le premier des chapitres régionaux à être formé, abordant des questions d'intérêt particulier pour ses membres, y compris la Convention européenne des droits de l'homme, la coordination des intérêts des États membres de l'Union européenne, la promulgation des directives de qualification et la création de l'EASO. Le chapitre a été à l'avant-garde du développement du droit des réfugiés et des migrations en Europe et travaille en étroite collaboration avec des partenaires tels que le HCR et l'EASO.
