ECJ judgement shows: Thousands of Syrian objectors were wrongly denied asylum follow-up applications

(08.02.2024) A judgment of the Court of Justice which significantly adds to the likelihood of an asylum seeker qualifying as a beneficiary of refugee status or subsidiary protection justifies his or her subsequent application being examined on the merits and cannot be rejected as inadmissible. Member States may authorise their courts or tribunals, where they annul a decision which rejected the subsequent application as inadmissible, to rule themselves on that application and, where appropriate, grant it.

Ukraine: Answers to questions about conscientious objection, recruitment and residence in Germany

(31.01.2024) Since the Russian attack, over 60,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed and 130,000 seriously injured. The recapture of the territories occupied by Russia has not yet been successful. To fill the gaps in the army, which is currently estimated at 800,000 soldiers, Ukraine is now trying to recruit 450,000 to 500,000 new soldiers. Even many who consider the war to be justified see themselves merely as cannon fodder in this war of position and attrition from which they want to escape. They, their relatives and the German public are therefore increasingly sending enquiries to Connection e.V., which we hereby answer.
