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

Protect the wellbeing of asylum seekers

  • Protect against threats and violence arising from an applicant’s gender, including gender identity and sexual orientation, by systematically applying the concept of “particular social group” under the Geneva Convention.

  • Allow asylum-seekers to recover from their journey before their asylum interviews, to prevent them from having inadequate preparation or limited opportunities to seek legal counsel, reducing the risk of negative decisions due to difficulties in presenting their case. 

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.
