EMN Flash: What National Protection Statuses Exist in Member States and Norway?

In addition to the two protection statuses harmonised at European level (refugee status and subsidiary protection), a variety of national protection statuses exist. While comparative information is available on how the Members States deal with the EU-harmonised protection statuses, there is an overall lack of information on the national protection statuses. Do Member States and Norway grant any other forms of protection than those covered by EU asylum legislation? If so, what type of statuses do they grant and what procedures have they put in place to process applications? What are the rights and standards that come with these statuses and how do they compare with the EU-harmonised statuses? The EMN Flash "What National Protection Statuses Exist in Member States and Norway?" presents key findings of the EMN Study „Comparative overview of national protection statuses in the EU and Norway”.
