The goal of the project “Addressing security concerns in asylum 
procedure – a comparative study in the V4 countries”, financed by the 
Visegrad Fund, was to provide a comprehensive overview of current 
national laws and practices in the Visegrad Group countries (Poland, 
Slovakia, The Czech Republic and Hungary) as regards to addressing 
security concerns within the broadly understood framework of refugee 

The resulting 4 country reports include a description of the national 
laws and provide examples of best practices and crucial jurisprudence in 
this regard. As the reports also list recommendations concerning both 
law and practice, the authors hope that their publication would serve as 
a basis for developing even more effective mechanisms incorporating 
security procedures into protection procedures, while upholding the 
international human rights standards.

The relation between asylum and security has not been subject to 
comparative research before and thus the project’s innovative report is 
meant to form a basis for discussing new policies with state governments 
and raise public awareness of the safeguards in place.
