Our study of the asylum law and practice of European Union (EU) member states as to the reception of asylum seekers and the examination of asylum applications has allowed us to formulate twenty-nine recommendations for future European asylum law and policy. These recommendations are listed below in the order in which they appear in the report (see chapters three throughfive). This section briefly presents the main conclusions on the four types of warranted Community action. For a number of issues, international law, member state practice, or both provide sufficiently clear parameters, thus allowing us to recommend the adoption of European standards. It is necessary to conduct further study on a number of other issues. Further, a number of issues require special attention when European asylum legislation is evaluated. As to one issue, concrete Community action is warranted in the short term. The reader is referred to the following chapters for substantiation of the conclusions.
