Horizon 2020 project lifts up research question of migration

2017-11-14

Was the migrant crisis of 2015 an issue related to the migrants themselves or a question of the EUs internal borders, political polarization and lack of crisis management?

 Several factors point to the later, amongst other things Brexit, the EU-Turkey agreement and the re-introduction of internal national borders. A recently granted horizon 2020 project, “Resond- Multilevel Governance of Mass Migration in Europe and Beyond” will study this question with a starting point in eleven different countries through 14 partners, where partners from Iraq, Lebanon and Turkey also are involved.
