Abstract

Following the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020, the EU’s Common European Asylum System, the Dublin III Regulation and the EURODAC database are no longer applicable to the UK. There is uncertainty about the UK’s handling of asylum seekers arriving in the country. There are currently (April 2022) no formal agreements between the UK and the EU or individual EU member states to determine responsibility for examining an asylum request. The EU did not propose alternative draft agreements on post-Brexit asylum cooperation. As a result, no agreements were adopted. Countries including France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands have already stated that they will not agree to bilateral returns deals with the UK. Without replacement returns agreements’, UK removals of asylum seekers will not be facilitated by their EU member state neighbours. This will mean that the number of asylum seekers entering the UK will undoubtedly increase. This paper will assess the implications on asylum and migration of the new land border between the UK and the EU in light of the Nationality and Borders Bill 2021.
