In our latest report, we analysed the functioning of the Serbian asylum system again, with special focus on the application of the "safe third country" concept in Hungary and the possible consequences of returning rejected asylum seekers to Serbia.

Serbia as a Safe Third Country: Revisited Serbia as a Safe Third Country: A Wrong Presumption and is based on the results of a three-day field mission by the HHC to Serbia in April 2012, as well as extensive desk research.
Given that only few substantial changes have occurred in both the Serbian asylum practice and in the policy of Hungarian authorities with regards to return to Serbia, unfortunately, our concerns expressed in the 2011 report remain valid.
The fact finding mission was supported by the UNHCR Central European Regional Representation.
