The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights has released its first quarterly bulletin for 2020. In September 2015, the Agency started collecting data on migration in several Member States and EU candidate countries which have been particularly affected by large migration movements. Its quarterly publications focus on the current fundamental rights situation of people arriving in the above-mentioned countries. The new volume addresses key fundamental rights concerns which had drawn the attention of the Agency between the 1st of October and the 31st of December 2019.

This issue covers topics such as legal and policy developments, situation at the border, asylum procedure, reception, child protection, immigration detention, return, hate speech, violent crime etc. It sources evidence from interviews with institutions and organisations, and data in the public domain.

A full report can be found, on FRA’s website.
