Chapter 7: The Common European Asylum System

Migration / BOOK
Lyra Jakuleviciene

Date: 11/12/2019

Lyra Jakulevičienė reviews the EU’s achievements in creating a common European asylum system, as well as the challenges that remain outstanding. The latter include – in line with observations made in other chapters in this publication – a deficit in common implementation practices as well as a deeper gridlock around the fundamental values and principles that should guide EU legislation in this area. The recommendations provided in this chapter focus, amongst others, on a better understanding and management of secondary movements and a further harmonisation of the conditions underwhich the subsidiary protection status is granted. 

This chapter is part of the publication ‘From Tampere 20 to Tampere 2.0: Towards a new European consensus on migration’, which takes stock of the EU’s migration and asylum policies 20 years after the historic 1999 Tampere European Council conclusions. It argues that solidarity and the implementation of common policies are the two building blocks for a new European consensus on migration. The book is the final result of a year-long research project conducted by the European Policy Centre together with Odysseus Academic Network, European Migration Network Finland and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation.
