Should refugees seeking asylum in Europe be distributed among EU member states according to a quota?
Unless the EU agrees on a refugee quota system it cannot fulfil its obligations in regards to asylum issues.
Several EU member states are failing to do their part in taking in asylum seekers, leaving the other member states with an excessive amount of asylum seekers to take in. A quota system would ensure that EU members share the responsibility.
A quota scheme is needed to deal effectively with what is an emergency situation in Europe.
It is possible for refugees to be accommodated for in Europe without quotas.
Even in countries where quotas are accepted there are no guarantees that refugees will be treated well.
