What are Volt's political goals? / A more humane and safe asylum system

Design a fair relocation system

  • Abolish the principle of first entry and ensure asylum seekers are distributed according to a mandatory distribution key among Member States.

  • Use important indicators, such as GDP and population density, to determine each Member State’s asylum seeker quota. Consider meaningful links that the asylum seeker might have, such as family and community ties, language proficiency and qualifications. Consider the voluntary solidarity capacity of regions, cities, and municipalities in the relocation efforts. Ensure that cities and municipalities can plan more long-term in terms of their housing and integration capacities with the distribution key.

  • Enforce compliance through a robust system of penalties for non-compliant Member States.

The 5+1 Challenges

Volt has defined 5+1 fundamental Challenges that need to be tackled in each European country and in Europe as a whole.

Why 5 + 1 Challenges?

The 5 Challenges are basically the same for every country, but their implementation can be adapted on the national level to take into account local realities.

The +1 Challenge – our proposal to reform and strengthen the EU – is identical across all our national programmes.
