Humanitarian residence permits. A safety net that Parliament has introduced to ensure thatDenmark doesn’t send people home to certain death or totally inhumane situations, eventhough they may not fulfil the criteria for gaining asylum.The reality is somewhat more doubtful. An application procedure that requires professionalassistance, criteria that in practice are not used even though they are in the law, civil servantswho make decisions based on medical certificates, physicians who have to write certificateswithout being paid for doing so.

All this has meant that only 121 people, including familymembers, were granted humanitarian residency in 2011 and in the preliminary publishedfigures for the first quarter of 2012 the number is down to 31.The government’s policy statement for 2011 states that there should be “Clear and reasonableregulations”, and “the circumstances in which humanitarian residence permits are grantedwill be tight and they will be continue to be the exception.

A humanitarian residence permitis given for a maximum of either one or two years at a time. Nonetheless, the rules shouldbe reviewed especially as very ill people can have great difficulty getting humanitarianresidency”.This report presents for the first time a comprehensive review of the subject and will hopefullycontribute to the government’s deliberations. The report includes concrete suggestions as tohow to solve the problems that are identified and twelve case stories which throw light on thecomplexity of the subject.
