Is the EU Better Prepared for the Next Migration Challenges? Politique étrangère, Vol. 84, No. 3, Autumn 2019
The European Union did respond to the massive influx of migrants in 2015, but with short-term measures, which have widened the divisions between member states.
Today, it remains divided on the very analysis of the migration problem and has not put systems in place which would enable it to respond to new crises. It is the EU’s decision-making processes, the very principles of its actions, as well as its international credibility, that are called into question.
