Reports are multiplying on migration and asylum in the Balkans. Just published the Jesuit Refugee Service about the asylum system of Croatia and Macedonia.
About Croatia before its entry into the European Union, the report points a capacity of reception of asylum seekers disproportionately low according to the significantly increasing number of applicants (+50% between 2011 and 2012), and an extremely low rate of acceptance, around 3%.
In Macedonia, it shows housing conditions unworthy and rates of recognition near zero.
The report recommends suspending deportations to Macedonia and to exercise caution in the application of the Dublin II Regulation with regard to the readmission of asylum seekers in Croatia, when it will be part of the EU.
