Migration Crisis. Securing External Borders Of The Eu And International Protection For Asylum Seekers


  • Florin TUDOR

    (Dunarea de Jos University of Galati, Romania)


It is well known that EU Member States are still making a desperate appeal for the rapid identification of concrete measures to secure external borders through more effective control of the flow of illegal immigrants that have invaded entire regions in the EU last year. Although the EU is known to have high standards on asylum, there have been lately several recommendations of important European political leaders to accelerate procedures to the detriment of objective assessment, which have been applied so far, and the expulsion of the rejected cases with the direct consequence of limiting waves of immigrants. International protection of asylum seekers is a major concern for humanity, and questions such as how much of it is solidarity and how much is protection of European citizens, and where the observance of rights and freedoms stops still occur. This study proposes a critical analysis of these issues while also highlighting the most important European public policies analyzed from the perspective of compliance with public international law.
