Opinions on the extent of EU control over asylum seeker policy the Netherlands 2019

This statistic displays the results of a survey of opinions regarding the extent of the European Union's control with regard to asylum seeker policy in the Netherlands in 2019. The survey results suggest that as of 2019, over a third of people in the Netherlands felt that the European Union's control over policy towards asylum seekers should be extended. 35 percent of people surveyed indicated that they thought the EU should have more of a say over whether asylum seekers were accepted or rejected, while just over 25 percent of people surveyed thought the EU's powers in this area should be curtailed.

Should the European Union have more or less control when it comes accepting or rejecting asylum seekers?*
