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

Establish a Common European Asylum System

  • Establish a Common European Asylum System with a uniform asylum procedure that respects the dignity and rights of asylum-seekers while fostering social integration and cooperation.

  • Speed up all asylum procedures to a maximum of 3 months from entering the country to the first decision, while guaranteeing social, legal and psychological support and decent conditions throughout the procedure. Make use of written prima facie procedures for positive decisions when administrations are overburdened.

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.
