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

Harmonise standards for procedures and reception conditions

  • Harmonise standards for uniform procedures and reception conditions, including the notion that the decision to grant asylum is the same for each Member State.

  • Ensure that the European Union Agency for Asylum remains at the forefront when it comes to a standardised asylum process; enable the EUAA to cooperate intensively with Member States to modernise their asylum systems so that they are up to the challenge and to intervene independently to ensure that even large numbers of arrivals are dealt with in an orderly way, in particular regarding arrivals by sea.

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.
