Handling the Refugee Influx

Between the Laws, Borders, and Political Discourses

When speaking about the refugees currently arriving to Europe, it is rather difficult to focus on one relevant dimension: the legal framework, border policy, and political discourse all converge to affect both how we speak and act on the issues arising from the mass influx of refugees on the territory of the European Union (EU).

This article attempts to deconstruct the EU’s response to the current ‘crisis’ and outline its relevance for Serbia’s asylum strategy. The focus will be on relevant EU legislation, such as the Dublin III Regulation, and ensuing issues, as well as the response taken regarding border policies and political discourse.
