Abstract

This edited volume aims to capture four dynamics that have not been sufficiently explored in the literature. The first one concerns the absorption of EU norms in Central and South Eastern Europe. The second dynamic is the reaction by the counties in this region to the massive movement of asylum seekers in 2015 and 2016 through their territories. The third dynamic captured in the edited volume is how, despite the dictates of the EU and the EU asylum legislation, the countries in question have used their autonomy and have initiated their own normative developments in the area of asylum during and beyond the crisis. The final dynamic addressed in this book concerns the question of solidarity and shared responsibility among EU Member States in the area of asylum.

Keywords: asylum, Europe, crisis
