Abstract:The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) and its reform proposals. The evaluation will be supported by analysing the asylum policies and changes therein, in both Germany and Hungary. Elaborating on the differences in asylum policies in the EU’s Member States and shedding light on the current dis-functioning of the CEAS is a further goal of this thesis. The CEAS as a flawed system, allowing extensive leeway to its Member States, constitutes the starting point of this thesis. Potential future developments in EU asylum policy and whether they can foster solidarity among the Member States will be discussed. This thesis will be divided into two parts, the first focusing on the reactions of Hungary and Germany towards the refugee crisis since summer 2015, and the second one elaborating the reform proposals of the CEAS, made in 2016. I will answer the question of whether these proposals entail solutions to the CEAS and its current crisis.
