Refugee Crisis in Europe, One Year After Conferece Reserved to Members

The arrival of one million refugees in Europe between 2015 and 2016 has been perceived as the proof of the drastic acceleration of international migration. What is the reality of the situation? How has this “refugee crisis” affected the European Union and its institutions? Where are we now, one year after?

While the institutions and members states of the EU continue to face a lack of solidarity among Europeans, new actors have emerged on the frontline of receiving refugees, beginning with cities. Based on the lessons drawn from a project led by them on the role of elected representatives of European cities, Christophe Bertossi and Matthieu Tardis will illustrate how the “refugee crisis” has deeply changed Europe.
