The aim of EASO is to facilitate, coordinate and strengthen practical cooperation among Member States in the field of asylum and improve the implementation of the EU’s Common European Asylum System. Some Member States are faced with specific and disproportionate pressures on their asylum and reception systems, due in particular to their geographical or demographic situation. The European Asylum Support Office is intended to help them by fostering solidarity within the Union so as to promote a better relocation of beneficiaries of international protection between Member States, while ensuring that asylum and reception systems are not abused.
