Lumeavioliittojen todellista määrää EU-maiden perheenyhdistämisprosesseissa vaikea osoittaa

 

Lumeavioliitot ovat saaneet EU-maiden medioissa julkisuutta ja ilmiön oletetaan olevan laajalle levinnyt. Euroopan muuttoliikeverkoston julkaiseman synteesitutkimuksen Misuse of the Right to Family Reunification perusteella lumeavioliitot ovat osa perheenyhdistämisprosessien arkitodellisuutta EU-maissa, joskin ilmiön laajuutta on vaikea todentaa vertailukelpoisen tilastotiedon puuttuessa. Synteesi perustuu 24 jäsenvaltion kansalliseen tutkimukseen, joissa selvitettiin lumeavioliittojen sekä vanhemmuudesta annettujen valheellisten ilmoitusten laajuutta EU-jäsenvaltioissa. Tutkimuksissa selviteltiin myös em. väärinkäytöstapojen tunnistamiseen kehitettyjä toimintamalleja sekä keinoja torjua väärinkäytöksiä. Tutkimusaiheen taustalla on vihreä kirja direktiivistä 2003/86/EY kolmansien maiden kansalaisten oikeudesta perheenyhdistämiseen, jolla EU-komissio on halunnut käynnistää julkisen keskustelun direktiivin soveltamiseen liittyvistä kysymyksistä sekä muutostarpeista.

Englanninkieliseen Misuse of the Right to Family Reunification-synteesiraporttiin voit tutustua EMN-raportit 2012-sivulla. Synteesiraportti käännetään myös suomeksi ja se valmistuu elokuun lopulla. Tiedotamme kun se on saatavilla sivuiltamme.
