Many of those have been forced to abandon their home countries and some have taken to decision to seek asylum in Germany. In Germany, the right of asylum is on a constitutional footing under §16a Grundgesetz. The Asylum Act is a further legislative instrument that has been introduced to regulate this area in more detail. It is quite clear that the right of asylum is not without limitations and that certain expectations are required to be met.

Under German law, it is §3 Asylum Act that determines who has the right of recognition as refugee. This law carefully follows the protocols laid down in the Geneva Convention on the Status of Refugees.
