The European Council on Refugees and Exiles (ECRE) has published its latest information sheet on COVID-19 measures and its impact on asylum, migration, and integration measures across Europe.

The list of measures related to asylum and migration introduced in response to the health crisis is non-exhaustive, includes measures adopted by governments and is based on open-source information, and information provided directly by ECRE members. ECRE has used its AIDA database and the ELENA network, including information provided by ELENA network members, as well as information compiled by PICUM. In particular, ECRE has benefited from and included the extensive information compiled by JRS Europe.

The information sheet is published and distributed to assist others in monitoring the impact of COVID-19. It is not intended to be exhaustive or definitive. All efforts have been made to ensure that the information is up-to-date, but note that the information has been collected over the last few weeks and measures in place might evolve rapidly.
