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.
