This text discusses the 2015/2016 crisis regarding the mass inflow of refugees into Europe caused by turmoil in Africa and in the Middle East. It suggests that the existing and newly adopted EU migration and asylum measures and policies may not only jeopardise asylum seekers’ rights, but also destabilise the EU regime of fundamental rights and lead to a changed paradigm of EU law.
