“Challenges and limitations of the Spanish asylum system” (CIDOB, Spain)

Challenges and limitations of the Spanish asylum system

The Spanish asylum system has been unable to respond quickly and effectively to the new migration reality, according to the National Report for Spain by the National Integration Evaluation Mechanism (NIEM) project, funded by the European Commission. Led in Spain by CIDOB, this project assesses integration policies for refugees and the beneficiaries of international protection at national level in 14 European countries. The report highlights the inclusive nature of the asylum system in Spain, while showing the limits of an outdated and under-resourced system that lacks the tools with which to address today’s international protection challenges.
