Special lecture, Michaelmas term 2013. Lecture by Madeline V Garlick (UNHCR) recorded on 24 October 2013 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford.

In this lecture, Madeline Garlick analyses the trends in arrivals, recognition rates and other responses to date to Syrians claiming protection in and at the borders of the EU. She questions whether the Common European Asylum System has proven its ability to deliver swift and consistent protection to those in need, as foreseen in the Treaties and successive political declarations, in the face of widespread and well-documented persecution, extreme violence and horrifying violations of human rights.
