The responsibility to manage migration to Europe is becoming an increasingly important issue. The agreement of a Common European Asylum System (CEAS) is an ever ongoing debate. Today there is nearly 60 million refugees in the world, and many of these are children. According to the UN Declaration of Human Rights everyone has the right to seek asylum in another country. Through the Dublin Regulation it is, however, regulated which country is responsible for the asylum application. Due to criticism the Dublin Regulation has been revised from Dublin II to current Dublin III. The UN Child Rights Committee has recommended Sweden to incorporate the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child with Swedish law to ensure the rights of the child. This essay examines whether the rights of the child are ensured when the Migration Court of Appeal and the Court of Justice of the European Communities are making decisions according to the Dublin Regulation. This essay also examines the effects of incorporation of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child with Swedish law.
Keywords: best interests of the child, respect for the views of the child, asylum seeking children, rule of law, justice, the Dublin regulation.
