The Common European Asylum System

Jan Spousta Jan Spousta / Ed. 13. 7. 2017

Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees (also known as Refugee Convention) from 1951 installed asylum into the international law as a fundamental right. Providing asylum became an international obligation. This Convention defines who can be considered as a refugee and installs so-called „non-refoulment principle“ forbidding country receiving asylum seekers from returning them to a country in which they would be in likely danger of persecution based on “race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion”.
