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

Establish efficient EU border registration centres

  • Register asylum-seekers upon arrival and inform them about the procedure swiftly in open registration centres at EU borders for efficient initial documentation, security and medical checks.

  • Provide streamlined procedures to prevent unnecessary delays and protect persons in vulnerable situations, including (unaccompanied) minors, pregnant women and persons with disabilities, who should be identified throughout the asylum procedure, particularly upon arrival, and receive adequate support. Guardians or specially trained assistants must be available for unaccompanied minors seeking asylum as soon as they are identified.

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.
