Relocation of asylum – seekers in the European Union

Alexandra BUCUR


This study analyzes the emergency situation characterised by a sudden inflow of nationals of third countries in Europe. Member States have increased their efforts to set up measures of solidarity and fair sharing of responsibility for relocating a significant number of applicants from Greece and Italy, in clear need of international protection. This article examines the relocation procedures and implications resulting from the commitments of Member States. The rights and obligations of applicants for international protection covered by the relocation process are also presented.
