MIGRATIONS AND ASYLUM: ANALYSIS AND PERSPECTIVES: The conventional policy of the EU concerning the readmission of irregular immigrants: an opaque policy with serious implications for human rights

Author:

Abstract:
This study examines the transparency and effectiveness of EU cooperation with third countries on return and readmission and reflects on how difficult it is to reconcile it with the rule of law and human rights culture. Thus, EU readmission agreements (EURA) formally concluded with third countries will be presented. The study then discusses the underlying issues arising from the increasing informality surrounding readmission policy, both at the EU and bilateral level. It finally concludes with a critical review of the conventional readmission policy with third countries from a human rights perspective.
