Professor Peter Hilpold (University of Innsbruck), our IG member, has recently published two topical papers on the international, EU and domestic law implications of the EU relocation quotas as instruments of burden-sharing in the asylum context. According to the author, such a system would violate international and EU law, but on the other hand the respective discussion has triggered a necessary debate about a reform of the international refugee system involving some form of a fairer burden-sharing.
