The Asylum Acquis Handbook is a unique and comprehensive tool for those who have a sincere interest in contributing to a sound, common European asylum policy. Asylum has always been an intensively debated topic, and these days even more so than in the recent past. Virtually everyone has an opinion on the subject and the general consensus is that the European Union should strive for a common asylum policy. Yet, basic information is lacking: while there is talk on an `acquis', talk on `communitarization', the various discussions, so far, miss the firm foundation on which to build the common European asylum house. The Asylum Acquis Handbook seeks to fill this gap and serves as an important reference book with in-depth information on asylum-related topics, including: + an overview of the Acquis + the texts of the various relevant instruments + value-free commentaries + informative contributions, especially written for this Handbook by leading experts, and + additional information and sources. Noteworthy is the Preface with relevant parts of a thought-provoking keynote address, delivered by Antonio Vitorino, EU Commissioner for Justice and Home Affairs, at the 4th Metropolis Conference,
