Abstract

The aim of this article is to examine the asylum debate in Europe with a view to feasible regulation in the future. Much of the literature which dominates this area is exclusively normative in approach. While this often provides welcome insight into the flaws of the system, it does not pay due regard to more comprehensive, and richer, conceptions of regulation.

In order to understand what is happening it is important to grasp the context of current regulation as well as its main themes. This is attempted here. The work concludes by exploring the new protection paradigm developed by Hathaway and suggests that it may offer a constructive way forward in the European context.

The murders of the Turkish woman and two Turkish girls in Mollin has released an unmistakable political effect: the people in the streets are defending the standards of a way of civil collective life that
