AIDA/ECRE: New legal briefing on the length of asylum procedures

The Asylum Information Database (AIDA) has published a new legal briefing on the length of asylum procedures. The briefing analyses the transposition and implementation of time limits as set out in the recast Asylum Procedure Directive for completing the regular asylum procedure, special procedures applicable to specific caseloads, as well as appeals against negative decisions. Overall, European practice confirms the non-binding character of procedural deadlines, which do not seem to be followed by asylum authorities in most cases.
