To 30 September 2007

Objective of the consultation

The European Commission adopted on the 6 June a Green Paper on the future of the Common European Asylum System.

How to submit your contribution

In this Green Paper the Commission seeks to outline the main issues at stake and invites constructive suggestions from all stakeholders to take these issues forward. The initial deadline for receiving contributions was 31st August 2007. The Green Paper also stated that a public hearing on the future of the Common European Asylum System would be organised on 18th October.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the date of the public hearing has been postponed. It will now take place on 7th November, in Brussels. This makes it possible for the Commission to accept written responses to the consultation launched by the Green Paper until 30th September 2007. Contributions sent after this date may not be taken into consideration by the Commission.

To this end, the Commission wishes to receive contributions commenting on the actions suggested above, no later than 30 September 2007 (Extended from 31 August 2007).

All responses from both public and private sectors will be published on the Commission’s internet site unless respondents explicitly state that they wish to keep particular information confidential.
