Dossier – the Migration Trail

European migration policies in a globalizing world.

As the influx of migrants to Europe from Africa and elsewhere unfolds as the biggest humanitarian, political and solidarity crisis of 2015, we are being challenged to formulate unified European policies. However, blind spots along the migration trails are hampering our understanding of the situation. While right-wing parties want to strengthen the borders to discourage migrants from coming to Europe, this living analysis seeks to find alternative solutions to the situation that take into account the humanitarian, political and solidarity principles at stake.
