On 27 June, JRS Europe announced its plans to launch a large scale research project, the “Detention of Vulnerable Asylum Seekers” (DEVAS) this September.

The project, partially funded by EU Commission’s European Refugee Fund (ERF), will bring together one partner organisation per country over an 18-month period to examine the situation and conditions which vulnerable asylum seekers and migrants face in detention in 23 EU states. The ERF seeks to support and encourage the efforts of member states in the reception of asylum seekers, integration of refugees and voluntary repatriation projects.
