Abstract:Since 2011 the EU is facing an increasing number of asylum seekers who are fleeing from violence and instability. Studies have shown that there is an unequal balance between MSs receiving asylum seekers. This research paper analyzes the extent to which the principle of solidarity is respected by the European Union and its Member States in the EU’s Common European Asylum System (CEAS). The study focuses on the two key legal instruments: the ERF and the so-called Dublin system. In spite of the existing obligation to create a common system based upon the principle of solidarity, only the ERF/AMIF seems to be an instrument of solidarity. The Dublin system on the other hand can be seen as a distribution or transfer system of asylum seekers between MSs that seems to impose heavier responsibilities on some MSs. The paper will conclude that with the Dublin’s criteria of country of first entry in place, the principle of solidarity cannot fully be respected by the CEAS.
