The «Dublin IV» Proposal: Towards more solidarity and protection of individual rights?

Sarah Progin-Theuerkauf


The Achilles‘ heel of the Dublin system is and has always been the lack of solidarity between the Member States and the relatively poor standard of protection of individual rights of the concerned applicants for international protection. In May 2016, the EU Commission has published a proposal to reform the Dublin III Regulation. Will the recast regulation achieve the aim of creating «a more sustainable and fair Common European Asylum System», as announced by the Commission? The following article discusses and analyses the Dublin IV proposal in the light of the principle of solidarity and the EU’s obligation to protect fundamental rights of migrants.
