Responsibility sharing has been at the core of the debates on asylum in the European Union given that the legal framework designed to perform this task, the so-called Dublin System, failed to provide justice among states in responsibility attribution by its very design. This paper addresses the question of justice in responsibility sharing among the Member States of the EU while also providing normative and empirical arguments for rethinking what is being owed to refugees qua refugees, as the envisioned beneficiaries of responsibility sharing regimes, when thinking about reforming the system of responsibility attribution in Europe.
