Given the increasing number of refugees, the EU is once again struggling to develop a common asylum policy. There are many worries, but little unity and even less togetherness.
On the one hand, there is the despair of people fleeing war, torture and persecution, but also the desperation of those who hope for a better life in Europe because there is simply no chance for it in their homeland. On the other hand, Europe is overwhelmed by the number of refugees, which is now rising again, and the fact that many migrants are not entitled to asylum. European politics in this area is like a constant déjà vu, well-known ideas are constantly put forward and then disappear again. Denmark, for example, halted its plans for an asylum seekers’ center in Rwanda.
