The European Union has for decades been the destination of millions of refugees seeking asylum after being persecuted in their own country. Asylum is a fundamental right recognized by the Geneva Convention of 1951. Various international instruments contain provisions guaranteeing rights to refugees and asylum-seekers. In 1999, the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) was established to handle the issue of granting asylum to refugees. Yet, some challenges and anomalies still exist, making the quest for asylum even more difficult. There is a need to spearhead reforms in the asylum system considering the increasingly globalizing nature of the world.
