Refugee Policies in Europe

Solution for an announced emergency

Edited By Andrea De Petris

Over the last years no other topic has dominated the political debate in Europe like the migration crisis did. In 2016 migrations flows across the Mediterranean Sea were at its height. In this publication the authors look at selected EU-governments and their national responses to the challenges posed by the migration phenomenon as well as the steps taken jointly on EU-level. This comparative approach gives an overview of the migration situation in selected EU-member states and provides insight in the policy measures put in place.
