The study also explains the Common European Asylum System and the Dublin Regulation with regard to the asylum process in the EU and recognition rates of asylum applications. The study analyses data from 1999 to 2012 and uses these result to show several differences within EU itself and proves that leftist governments do not grant more asylum application than rightist governments.
