Abstract

In 2015-2016, migration towards Europe has pressured on the EU asylum and migration systems, challenging the adequacy of the legal design of the Common European Asylum System (CEAS). This impact
on the implementation of both the CEAS and national asylum systems in practice called theurther harmonisation into question. This baseline study provides a comprehensive overview of the commentaries and evaluations that were made on the functioning of the CEAS between January 2014 and December 2017.
The baseline study examines in particular the EU wide responses to the high influx of refugees, the hotspot approach, and the implementation and effectiveness of the Dublin system with regard to the determination
of the responsible state for an asylum application. Furthermore, this study provides an overview of the main comments and evaluations dealing with the Procedure Directive, the Qualification Directive, and the Reception Directive, also taking into account new proposals of the European Commission.
