Home Affairs Programmes: European Refugee Fund - Farib Nazari
Some 250 000 people apply for asylum in the EU each year. However, the number of applicants is not equally distributed among EU States. Some States face larger strains on their reception capacities and asylum systems due to the disproportionally large influxes of refugees into their territories. European solidarity with these EU states is ensured through practical cooperation, harmonisation of legislation and the European Refugee Fund (ERF).
