CM1817 Comments on the European Border and Coast Guard and European Asylum Agency

This comment concerns the drafts for a new Regulation on a European Border and Coast Guard, incorporating also the EUROSUR system (COM (2018) 631 final) and the amended proposal for a Regulation on a European Union Asylum Agency (COM(2018) 633 final). The foreseen expansion of the mandate of both agencies raises questions in the sphere of accountability and the protection of human rights.
