ABSTRACT
The article reveals that 25 percent of the 250,000 claimants seeking refuge status each year are granted positive outcomes, with Portugal giving 100 percent positive decisions while Ireland gave two percent in 2010. It attributes the wide disparity in the handling of asylum applications between European Union (EU) Member States as reflective of the current asylum and migration policies applied in each country. The article also illustrates the asylum appeals process in England.
