EMN study ‘Accurate, timely, interoperable? Data management in the asylum procedure’

This study examines how data are managed in the different phases of the asylum procedure across Member States and Norway. It does so by mapping data management approaches in the asylum procedure, examining whether there have been procedural changes to enhance data sharing among asylum authorities (and others), and how such changes have impacted data management. Finally, the study identifies recent trends, challenges and good practices in relation to data management.
