This is a limited update of ECRE's 2004 survey on complementary and subsidiary protection. This update covers nine EU Member States plus Switzerland. The objective of the survey was to analyse systems of complementary protection operating in these countries.

ECRE expresses its gratitude to the Netherlands Advisory Committee on Migration Affairs (Adviescommissie voor Vreemdelingenzaken - ACVZ) for funding the research that led to the updated country information sheets contained in this report. The information given is current as of March 2009.
