Living conditions of asylum seekers in Italy

Ecco il terzo articolo di ASMiRA scritto nell’ambito del Fortress Europe Project. Autrice del pezzo è Silvia Cravesana.

Access to adequate reception conditions for asylum seekers during the examination of their asylum application is an essential element of any asylum system. Lack of adequate reception conditions not only is in contrast with basic human rights (cf. for example art. 1 EU Charter of Fundamental Rights) and obligations towards asylum seekers according to European Standards (in particular, the Reception Conditions Directive), but could also undermines the effectiveness of the asylum procedure. In particular, the claimants’ capacity to go through the process, deal with asylum interview and provide requested documents may be hindered.
