Political Asylum in Europe: responding to the challenges of the Mediterranean

Vincent Cochetel
European Issue n°365 - 07/09/2015

The Foundation has published the report of a meeting that took place on 8th July last organised by the Centre of Analysis, Forecasting and Strategy (CAPS) at the French Foreign Office and the Centrre for International Studies and Research (CERI) with Vincent Cochetel, the Europe Bureau Director for the High Commissioner for Refugees. The latter draws an analysis of the various forms of the present crisis in Europe: a crisis linked to a massive influx of refugees into Europe, a crisis of responsibility and solidarity between States, a crisis of trust, of values etc.. In his opinion the crisis in which Europe now finds itself is deeply political: it challenges the values of solidarity and trust between the Member States of the EU.
