From its beginning, the European Union was concerned about the refugee problem and, therefore, asylum seekers. According to the current legislation it is confirmed the fact that EU wants a common asylum system respecting the 1951 Geneva Convention on refugees status and the New York Protocol of 1967. By establishing the state responsible for examining the asylum application, it prevents the person to "choose" one country to properly examine an application for determining a form of protection. The Dublin Convention, founded the principle of responsibility of examining the asylum application by one member of the European Union, establishes the responsible state and under which conditions. "Eurodac" System is intended to enable implementation of the Dublin Convention. Member States have implemented these rules in their national policies, thereby attempting to control also the immigration phenomenon.
