Fundamental Right of Asylum

Recht auf Asyl, right of asylum, الحق في اللجوء

Recht auf Asyl = right of asylum

The right of asylum is an international fundamental right. In the Federal Republic of Germany it is part of the constitution (article 16a: “Politically persecuted people enjoy the right of asylum”.). You can reclaim the right of asylum if you provably experienced political persecution in your country of origin or if you were in life-threatening conditions there for other reasons. In addition, having joined the Geneva Convention on Refugees, Germany committed itself to receive refugees who require international protection. Accordingly, your individual reasons for protection are proved in the course of the asylum procedure.
