respond in a nutshell
More than a million migrants and refugees crossed into Europe in 2015, sparking a sense of crisis as countries struggled to cope. The so-called refugee crisis has created deep divisions and policy incoherence in the EU among member states. The crisis foregrounded the vulnerability of European borders, the tenuous jurisdiction of the Schengen system and broad problems with multi-level governance of migration and integration. One of the most visible impacts of the refugee crisis has been the polarization of politics in EU Member States and intra-Member State policy (in)coherence in responding to the crisis.
The recently granted Horizon 2020 project RESPOND will study the multilevel governance of migration in 11 countries. The consortium behind this project consists of 14 partners from source, transit and destination countries and will be coordinated by Uppsala University. This project is the first to be granted within the Humanities at Uppsala University and will take place from December 2017 – November 2020
