Common European Asylum System (CEAS)

Note: The CEAS is part of European border politics. So it comes with the physical border mechanisms, ‘Fortress Europe‘, and prevention of emigration, contracts for deportation as well as bilateral agreements.

Common European Asylum System (CEAS) is a set of bills aimed at further harmonising European asylum policy.

The system consists of seven bills. Each bill has its own rapporteur and its own
separate process. The seven rapporteurs form a group called the “Asylum Contact
Group”. These rapporteurs play an important role in the harmonisation process,
since they are the ones suggesting amendments and proposing compromises.
All of these proposals are currently being negotiated, which means they might
