Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines forced migration in Europe, with an emphasis on the asylum and immigration policies and legislative frameworks adopted by the Council of Europe and the European Union. More specifically, it considers how developments in Europe can influence the interpretation of international law on the protection of refugees across other regions of the world. It also looks at the situation of victims of trafficking and stateless persons in Europe, the harmonization of legal instruments governing refugees, and the external dimension of EU asylum policies. The chapter concludes by discussing future challenges faced by Europe in terms of guaranteeing the protection to forced migrants.
