Abstract

For the past few years the Mediterranean Sea has become a graveyard for the people coming from the Middle East and North Africa to Europe, in search of a better life or simply life. But on many other occasions the waves of the Sea have hidden the dreams of the Others. At the edge of the Old Continent there is a gap between Us and Them. Unfortunately, the ‘clash of civilizations’, as described by Huntington, reveals also a clash between societal security and fundamental human rights. The meaning of each of these terms is different and right at the same time. This book is based on a debate initiated with my students from the MA Program ‘Leadership and Communication in International Organisations’ at the Department of International Studies and Contemporary History (Babes-Bolyai University, Faculty of History and Philosophy).

Keywords: Refugee Crisis, European Union, International Law, Copenhagen School, Theory of Securitization
