Nowadays, countries of the world are faced with a large number of cases of human rights violations. Persons from those countries are looking for protection from the European Union member states, because they have good legislative systems of asylum and refugee protection. Directive 2011/95/EU regulates standards for the qualification of third-country nationals or stateless persons as beneficiaries of international protection for a uniform status for refugees or persons eligible for subsidiary protection and the content of protection granted. Persons who believe they have grounds for refugee status or subsidiary protection status submit application forms with evidence of their situation (evidence of persecution, serious threats, violations of basic human rights) to the competent authorities of the EU member states. The competent authorities address the requirements and can make a decision on granting refugee status or subsidiary protection status. Improper claims are dismissed. The Directive regulates basic human rights of persons eligible for international protection, such as informing in their own language, access to employment, maintaining family unity, travel documents, residence permits, access to education. The Directive has special provisions on unaccompanied minors.
