Spravedlivý a udržitelný: Jak reformovat azylový systém EU

Plenární zasedání Přistěhovalectví10-03-2017 - 17:42

Švédská liberálka Cecilia Wikström navrhuje reformovat dublinská pravidla určující, který členský stát je odpovědný za zpracování žádosti o azyl. Ve čtvrtek 9. března je představila ve výboru pro občanské svobody. V Česku vyvolal ohlas hlavně její návrh odebrat zemím odmítajícím uprchlíky některé eurofondy.
