Press conference by Cecilia Malmström on the strengthening of the solidarity between Member States and EU institutions in the field of asylum

3169 views

On 2 December 2011 in Brussels, Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, gave a statement to present the EC proposal on "Enhanced intra-EU solidarity in the field of asylum", aiming at reinforcing the solidarity between Member States in the field of asylum, and ensuring the protection for people in need of shelter. The events of the Arab spring, and the rising number of migrants arriving to Malta and to the Italian island of Lampedusa, had put the issue of solidarity in the asylum field in stark focus during the past months. These events stressed even further the need for a "Common European Asylum System" by 2012, and highlighted a lack of mutual trust between Member States.
