The European context

Many people travel to the European Union in order to escape from war and persecution or for economic reasons. The EU’s obligation to help those in need of protection is entrenched in the Charter of Fundamental Rights as well as in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
Joint legal provisions and practical support measures have been developed in order to counter this challenge as well as possible.

The Common European Asylum System – CEAS

The introduction of a common asylum procedure and of a standard status for individuals who require international protection is a major component of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS). Its aim is to ensure that asylum-seekers are treated fairly and that their cases are examined according to uniform standards, regardless of the Member State in which they file their asylum applications.
