The paper examines the EU's challenges in the field of migration, and suggests how Brussels and EU governments might promote its own form of order, and suggestions on how to reframe current approaches to facilitate a more effective and appropriate response.
For more than 20 years, Europe was encouraged to see the migration as a synopsis of globalization, victory of global economy over territorial order. Today, we are facing a geopolitical competition. States all over around the world, especially in Europe, are not trying only to return the control of its borders, but also to benefit from the migration crisis for geopolitical gains.
The paper aims to answer several important questions: is geography today more important than the trade? How Europe can cope with the competition of promoting alternative measures and new forms of power? Why are there alliances between EU member-states regarding the migration crisis and what is their purpose?
Key words: globalization, migration, refugees, European Union
