The European Commission is presenting a proposal to improve the European Asylum procedure that aims at ensuring a higher degree of harmonisation and better procedural standards of protection. The amendments are expected to simplify decision-making procedures, thus preventing abuse; and to streamline procedures for granting rights.
The idea is to progress towards the establishment of a common asylum procedure.
This Info-clip contains the following images:

- Application being checked in the Eurodac system to ensure they have not previously applied elsewhere in the EU;
- Daily life in a Belgian "accommodation centre" for asylum seekers near Brussels.
Only the original language version is authentic and it prevails in the event of its differing from the translated versions.
