EU: BARROT (COMMISSION), "MAKING THE EUROPEAN ASYLUM SYSTEM MORE JUST AND EFFICIENT"

"A system more human and just." This is the aim of the Commission which intends to modify the European asylum system. It is about improving "existing legislation", namely three documents: the Directive on reception conditions for asylum-seekers; the Dublin system which stipulates which Member state is competent to assess an application; the regulation establishing EURODAC, a central database containing the asylum applicants’ fingerprints. These modifications will apply to the recent "European Pact on Immigration and Asylum." Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the Commission, declares "it is necessary to improve the system’s efficiency and to ensure better protection and equality." "By modifying the directive on reception, we can improve the living conditions of asylum-seekers," he explains "and justify detention only in limited and justified circumstances, excluding minors in any case, to meet the needs of vulnerable people such as the victims of torture." "By modifying the Dublin system and EURODAC," Mr Barrot continues "we want to make the European asylum system more efficient and just." ” “
