Not exactly a pithy title but looks interesting from ECRE:

The study intends to examine the extent of implementation of asylum-related judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union (hereinafter ‘the CJEU’) and their impact on relevant asylum policies across the EU. It also looks at the role national authorities and the judiciary play in ensuring the application of CJEU case law and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU (hereinafter ‘the EU Charter’). In particular, the study aims to:
● Assess the national legislative and policy impact of the selected CJEU judgments;
● Identify national and EU-level guidance documents as well as national jurisprudence which interpret the
judgments or key concepts included therein;
● Analyse whether the CJEU judgments are interpreted divergently across the selected EU Member States;
● Examine how the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights is used in the selected Member States when applying the CJEU judgments in question.
The study is designed for legal practitioners, academics and decision makers who apply the asylum related CJEU judgments and the EU Charter to their policy, decision-making, litigation, research and advocacy work.
