The UN refugee agency, UNHCR, has appealed to the German government to make the protection of refugees one of its priorities during its EU presidency, which began on Wednesday. The planned EU pact for migration and asylum offers the European Union the opportunity to "better protect displaced people in Europe and abroad and to provide more support to host countries", said the UNHCR.

The organisation's EU representative, Gonzalo Vargas Llosa, pointed out that refugees are particularly at risk from the corona virus. "The virus knows no borders and affects all of us. However, certain populations, including displaced people, are at increased risk," he said. Through political and financial support, the EU could help to better protect refugees from the virus.

The UNHCR urged the EU to ensure access to asylum even during the Corona crisis. Fair and quick asylum procedures are needed to quickly determine who needs protection and who does not.

Federal Minister of the Interior Horst Seehofer (CSU) has announced that he wants to make a reform of the EU asylum system a focus of the six-month German presidency. Seehofer wants to move the decision on asylum applications to the EU's external borders in order to reduce the number of refugees entering the country. Depending on the result of the examination, the refugees should then be returned directly from the EU border to their countries of origin or distributed to EU member states.

Seehofer's plans, however, encounter resistance from coalition partner SPD. The Bundestag faction of the Social Democrats instead calls for "open" EU centers for the treatment of asylum applications, which "do not necessarily have to lie at the EU's external borders".

Asylum reform is also a hot topic among EU countries. The Dublin agreement currently in force affects countries on the EU's external borders, such as Greece, Italy and Spain. A revision has always failed in the past few years on the question of the distribution of refugees because Poland, Hungary and other countries categorically refused to accept refugees.
