Migration Policy Centre launches new project on solidarity and responsibility sharing in the EU asylum policy

The MPC Solidarity Project (started in April 2015) has been set up with the understanding that asymmetric challenges in the field of asylum and irregular migration put common values, mutual trust and ultimately the freedom of movement inside the EU at risk. Its core objectives are to critically evaluate how the principle of solidarity and fair sharing of responsibility has been operationalised to date, and to identify mechanisms that will make its implementation more effective on the basis of objective criteria. More information on the project will soon be available on the MPC website.
