    This policy update’s Special Focus looks at the situation in the Mediterranean, where SAR vessels have been caught in stand-offs with EU member states over the disembarkation and relocation of asylum seekers. Since the end of 2018, so-called “temporary arrangements” have been implemented aiming to relocate migrants rescued at sea to those member states willing to cooperate. In an effort to move away from this problematic, ad-hoc approach, the Commission proposes setting up a contingency plan that would provide a more structural mechanism for relocating asylum seekers to EU member states.
