Furthermore the project seeks to promote the implementation and transposition of EU asylum legislation reflecting the highest possible standards of protection in line with international refugee and human rights law and based on best practice."  Note that national reports are already available for Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland and the UK.
