Plenary Session: Implementation of the Dublin III Regulation
Implementation of the Dublin III Regulation (A9-0245/2020 - Fabienne Keller)
I voted in favour of this report for listing the concerns raised by the application of the Dublin Regulation, which sets out the criteria and mechanisms for determining the EU country responsible for examining asylum applications, given that there are no reliable implementation reports or impact assessments that support the merit and efficiency of this legal instrument.
Thus, it is essential to carry out an analysis of the legal framework applicable to the issues of asylum and migration, assessing the respective implications and results, in order to assess whether these policies respond categorically to these problems, being certain that the empirical data collected in recent years seem to indicate that this system presents itself as excessively dysfunctional, which entails great financial costs, but mainly human ones, making the immediate reformulation of these policies imperative.
As a conclusion, it should be noted that the current system of determining the responsibility of Member States in relation to asylum applications causes a tremendous disproportionality that affects a minority of countries, which ends up harming the applicants, who see family reunification and humanitarian criteria being disregarded in the answers.
