Комиссар Миятович выступает в Европейском суде по правам человека третьей стороной по делу о воссоединении семьи в Дании

Сегодня Комиссар приняла участие в слушании Большой палаты Европейского Суда по правам человека по делу М.А. против Дании, касающегося отказа в воссоединении семьи сирийскому гражданину со статусом предоставленной временной защиты, поскольку он не обладал видом на жительство сроком на три года.

“The issue of family reunification is key to the lives of many people receiving international protection in Europe. Research shows the devastating effects of concerns about the situation of family members who are left behind on the mental well-being of recipients of international protection and on their integration”, said the Commissioner.

The Commissioner observed that a number of Council of Europe member states, including Denmark, have introduced restrictions limiting the family reunification rights of persons with subsidiary or temporary protection, whilst such restrictions have not been applied to persons recognised as refugees.

In light of the similar situation of persons with such other statuses to those defined in the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, and the fact that their need for protection is in practice almost never temporary, the Commissioner emphasised that differential treatment with regard to family reunification, and in particular subjecting them to a waiting period, cannot be objectively and reasonably justified.

She also reiterated her concern that specific national groups, such as Syrians, are particularly affected by restrictions on family reunification and underscores that prolonging family separation is ultimately detrimental to integration efforts.
