    This EPIM policy update covers the June European Council Summit and the developments leading up to it. Whilst the Council conclusions are not ground-breaking, two points deserve attention. Firstly, they include the concept of ‘regional disembarkation platforms’ as a new approach to processing those who are saved in Search and Rescue (SAR) operations outside of the EU. Secondly, they mention ‘controlled centres’ within member states to provide for rapid processing of asylum seekers and other migrants. As further explored in this update’s special focus section, serious questions remain concerning the implications for human rights protection and the feasibility of these new approaches.
