This paper deals with the principle of subsidiarity in asylum law. More specifically, by applying an economic approach, the paper examines the need for harmonization of asylum standards in order to reach the goal established in Article 5 of the Treaty on European Union. In other words, this scientific contribution utilises an economic methodology to investigate the application of the subsidiarity principle by considering some of the most important economic criteria for both centralisation and decentralisation, and by applying the findings to asylum law. This paper does not apply a comprehensive normative analysis, but rather aims to expose the advantages and disadvantages of EU asylum policy. In addition, the contribution exposes the two different types of harmonisation. In its conclusion, the paper considers the findings by discussing the advantages of a centralised EU policy that also allows for competition between member states.
