EASO Vulnerability Experts’ Network
In 2018 EASO launched the single Expert Network on Vulnerability, incorporating activities formerly implemented under the EASO Network on Activities on Children (ENAC) and the EASO Expert Network on Trafficking in Human Being (EASO THBNet) and held its first meetings. The purpose of this Network is to improve the identification and response to the special needs of vulnerable persons by reinforcing practical cooperation between members on issues related to vulnerable persons in need of international protection in a mainstreamed manner.
EASO also continued to develop practical support tools in 2018, publishing the second edition of the EASO Practical Guide on Age Assessment and completing the work on A Practical Guide on the Best Interests of the Child and a report on Asylum Procedures for Children.
