Romeo Victor Ionescu


The paper deals with the impact of the asylum applicants on the EU28. It points out the dimension of the phenomenon under a global approach. The comparative analysis of the different geographical asylum flows is followed by an analysis of the possibilities of the asylum applicants to integrate in the European society and on the European labour market. The analysis covers different asylum flows from: non-EU countries, Asia, America, Australia and Oceania. A distinct analysis is focused on the ex-Russian Union countries and on Arabian countries. The dynamic analysis of the data is followed by an approach regarding cultural, social and religious aspects of the asylum applicants. The paper uses the latest official statistic data. The main conclusion of the analysis is that the costs of the asylum phenomenon are greatest than the benefits for the EU, but the humanitarian approach is impossible to be eliminate.
