To date, the Common European Asylum System (CEAS) has failed to offer a comprehensive and coherent refugee protection regime. Subsequent reforms have not addressed its fundamental flaws. I posit that, unless we engage in a fundamental rethink of the CEAS, the current third phase of reform -and future reform –will not produce a CEAS that is ‘fit for purpose’ (COM92017) 820 final, 7.12.2017). It will not establish a stable and future-proof asylum framework’ (COM92017) 820 final).
