These include proposals for bringing the rules for the reception of asylum seekers, the record of fingerprints of migrants in a database, the resettlement of recognised refugees, and expansion of the European asielagentschap.

In addition, it would require the approval come for more recent proposals, for example, expansion of the European border – and coast guard.
