The Future of Asylum in Europe? A View from the European Council on Refugees and Exiles
This contribution addresses first the deficiencies of the Dublin system and its reform, and the Reception Conditions Directive. It continues with the analysis that although these instruments are properly reformed, the access of asylum seekers to the borders, as well asylum procedures, is not being solved by these reforms. The contribution continues by highlighting the effect of tightening of border controls to the asylum seekers’ ability to lodge their applications.
