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.
A European Agenda on Migration was published in May 2015 bringing together the different steps the EU must take to build a coherent and comprehensive approach to migration. However, EU member-states are still falling to find a mutual solution and adequate response, leaving hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants vulnerable.
What are the origins of the current crisis? Why are the current policy instruments and actions insufficient to deal with it? What can be done to address the real causes of the present crisis? How can we enhance the EU’s common action and set out an effective and efficient EU migration policy? This paper will try to give answers to these and other questions in order to explain the political, legal and institutional aspects of this highly complex phenomenon. In conclusion, a few proposals will be put forward for possible solutions.
Key words: European Union, migration, refugees, crisis, solutions.
