Everyone for themselves? Refugee policy in federalism

Every time the number of applications for asylum increases, refugee policy causes conflicts between political levels. When the municipalities feel overburdened by the need to accommodate the refugees they call for financial support by the Federal Government and the federal states. The Federal Government on the other hand holds the states responsible for fulfilling their statutory tasks more efficiently. It criticises, for example, an inconsistent enforcement of negative asylum decision making. It seems that the responsibility for refugee policy is flipping back and forth which can lead to confusion easily. Who is responsible for what? How does refugee policy in federalism work? And who is avoiding responsibility? In my contribution, I address these questions. After outlining the division of responsibility between the European Union, the Federal Government, the federal states, and the municipalities, I will give some examples of the incoherency of German refugee policy. In my conclusion, I will discuss deficits and solutions by highlighting two functions of federalism.
