The European Union Agency for Asylum (EUAA) is an agency of the European Union that plays a key role in the development and practical application of the Common European Asylum System. It was established with the aim of enhancing cooperation between Member States om asylum policy, as well as directly supporting them in day-to-day asylum affairs through training, guidelines and, in emergencies, teams of experts. The agency also gathers information on asylum affairs in the Member States and in third countries.

The EUAA was established in 2022, as the direct successor to the European Asylum Support Office (EASO).
