Rie Ljungmann, Solveig Madsen, Emrah Karadogan & Elisabet Kass

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The aim of this study is to investigate the development of the common European Asylum System, and its cornerstone, which consist of the Dublin (II) Regulation. The intention with Dublin Regulation was to integrate the legal standards of asylum seekers and coordinating the policies. With this study we want to give an explanation to how and why the Common Asylum System came to look as it does today. This is done through Andrew Moravcsik’s Liberal intergovernmentalism theoretical framework, by looking at the EU’s Member states, special Germany and Italy’s, preferences during the negotiation of Dublin II. Further, we present the outcomes of the negotiation and which effect it has on Southern Member states.
