The project is funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation and is coordinated by the Chemnitz University of Technology in Germany. CEASEVAL combines multiple disciplines in order to explore different aspects of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) and to integrate different perspectives into new conceptual frameworks on harmonisation and solidarity among Member States, providing policy recommendations. FIERI is partner in the project and leader of the work-package on Multilevel governance of reception which is aimed at understanding processes that have led to the current configuration of national asylum reception systems, and what are the main drivers of divergence/convergence between them, by adopting a multilevel governance perspective. All the research materials are available on http://ceaseval.eu/.
In the context of the FIERI project, they also contributed with the following products:

The video interviews conducted as part of the project are available online. We asked various European stakeholders, including representatives from local administrations, international organizations, think tanks, and civil society organizations, for insights to improve the reception of asylum seekers in the EU. We sought reflections on existing obstacles and the contributions that local authorities and civil society actors can make to strengthen the Common European Asylum System (CEAS).
