The EU’s quota-based distribution of migrants is slower than expected
Quota-based distribution of irregular migrants as proposed by the European Commission is slowly proceeding. According to the original plans 160,000 persons should have been transferred so far, but so far only 18,184 migrants have been relocated between the Member States. The European Commission has recently presented its latest report, through which it seeks to put pressure on unwilling Member States. The decision by the European Court of Justice in the case of Hungary and Slovakia challenging the system is expected in September, and it will probably be followed by a renewed discussion regarding the subject matter.
