Tradable Refugee-admission Quotas and EU Asylum Policy

Jesús Fernández-Huertas Moraga () and Hillel Rapoport

CESifo Economic Studies, 2015, vol. 61, issue 3-4, 638-672

Abstract: The current European Union (EU) asylum policy is widely seen as ineffective and unfair. We propose an EU-wide market for tradable quotas on both refugees and asylum seekers coupled with a matching mechanism linking countries’ and migrants’ preferences. We show that the proposed system can go a long way towards addressing the shortcomings of the current system. We illustrate this claim using the recent problems regarding relocation faced by the European Relocation from Malta program. (JEL codes: F22, F5, H87, I3, K33, 019).
