For ease of reference the following three posts set out the introductions to each of the presentations and the case citations.

  • Detention in UK pending transfer to another Member State;
  • Detention in another Member State pending transfer to the UK;
  • Risk of detention in another state as grounds for resisting transfer.

Common European Asylum System

  •  the Dublin III Regulation (Council Regulation (EC) No 604/2013 establishing the criteria and mechanisms for determining the Member State responsible for examining an asylum application lodged in one of the Member States by a third-country national).
  • the Reception Directives (Council Directive 2013/33/EU laying down minimum standards for the reception of asylum seekers (“the recast Reception Directive”). The UK has opted out of the recast version, and remains governed by the previous version: Council Directive 2003/9/EC laying down minimum standards for the reception of asylum seekers)
  • the Qualification Directives (Council Directive 2011/95). Again, this the recast Qualification Directive does not apply to the UK. The UK remains governed by Qualification Directive 2004/83/EC).
  • the Procedures Directives (Council Directive 2013/32/EU on common procedures for granting and withdrawing international protection (“the recast Procedures Directive”). Again, this does not apply to the UK. The UK remains governed by Council Directive 2005/85/EC.
  • the Eurodac Regulation (Regulation (EU) No 603/2013
