The Handbook on European Law Relating to Asylum, Borders and Immigration
Date: 29 October 2013
Professor David Sugarman is a member of the advisory panel of academics, judges and practitioners that contributed to the Handbook on European Law Relating to Asylum, Borders and Immigration commissioned by the European Court of Justice and European Court of Human Rights and published in June 2013.
The handbook (pp. 255) is the first comprehensive guide to European law on asylum, borders and immigration. It takes into account the case law of the ECtHR and that of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). It also refers to applicable EU regulations and directives, as well as the European Social Charter (ESC) and other Council of Europe instruments. The handbook is aimed at lawyers, judges, prosecutors, border guards, immigration officials and others working with national authorities, as well as non-governmental organisations and other bodies that may be confronted with legal questions in the areas covered by the handbook. The guide is freely available in English, French, German and Italian:
Spanish, Greek, Bulgarian, Romanian, Croatian, Hungarian and Polish versions will follow later this year. This second practical handbook builds on the experience of the first joint project between the two institutions which led to the publication of the Handbook on European non-discrimination law in 2011, and which was co-authored by Professor Sugarman.
The UK launch of the Handbook took place in Doughty Street Chambers, London, probably the largest and most wide-ranging civil liberties legal practice in the world, in September 2013.
