Welcome to the European Database of Asylum Law (EDAL)
Following a brief hiatus in funding, work has resumed on EDAL.
Over the next 12 months we will be adding approximately 500 new case summaries and increasing the scope of the database to include content from 6 additional EU jurisdictions: Austria, Italy, Greece, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia. Decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and the Court of Justice of the European Union will now also be included for the first time.
Development work is already underway to upgrade our website and add additional features. We have recently added a News feature and soon a blog and journal section will follow; a fully multi-lingual interface, Advanced Search and many other features are also in the pipe-line.
In the meantime, the site remains fully operational and you can continue to search or browse the almost 500 case summaries of relevance to the Common European Asylum System. In addition, you can follow updates on national and European judgments as well as other news through Twitter or Facebook. Just follow the links at the bottom of the page or simply browse our Twitter feed which is reproduced in the panel to the right.
