Measures regarding asylum-seekers from safe countries

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This study uses the ‘realist evaluation approach’ of Pawson and Tilley (1997) to examine the measures regarding asylum-seekers from safe countries and to study the development of the influx and departure of this group of asylum-seekers during the period 2013-2018; for 2018 only the first six months of the year were taken into consideration. Because we have included the influx and departure statistics for asylum-seekers from safe countries from before 2016 in the analysis, it is possible to provide some insight into the influx and departure of this group of asylum-seekers before and after the introduction of the measures.
The central questions in this study were:

  1. What measures regarding asylum-seekers from safe countries were taken and what were the objectives of these measures?
  2. How were these measures implemented?
  3. To what extent is it likely that these measures have had an effect on the arrival and the departure of this group of asylum-seekers, the fast handling of asylum applications and keeping the burden for Dutch society to a minimum?
