Asylum seekers whose their asylum applications have been rejected in Europe may have another chance.
The EASO office or the European asylum support office may receive more support than previously for this purpose. In addition to its work of facilitating the improved protection for asylum seekers and coordination between member states in Europe, EASO may have an important new role to play in reviewing the rejected asylum requests. Not all the asylum seekers get accepted in the European countries during the asylum process, and some of them were forced to leave the country. This new chance could give them hope to prove their need for the asylum statue.
In 2008, the European Commission proposed the creation of an asylum office such as EASO to boost cooperation between member states in managing asylum requests and on April 20, the European Commission proposed a 10-point plan that included EASO in the process of assisting asylum applicants and collecting information about smuggling operations.
In April 2016 the European Commission proposed to transform EASO into a European Union Agency for Asylum.
