The Normative Power Europe and the European Refugee Crisis
My dissertation is entitled “Promised land: The Normative power Europe and the European refugee crisis”. The dissertation approaches the legitimacy of normative power Europe of Ian Manners regarding the refugee’s influx from the year 2015. The thesis studies the challenges of EU asylum and migration policies and suggests that there is a problem of legitimacy regarding the application of EU foreign policies and norms concerning the influx of refugees from the past year. Particularly, it seeks to answer the following questions: How has the migration crisis in Europe contributed to the normative power projection from the EU?, Do the foreign policies actions taken by European leaders match the rhetoric employed in the declarations and official documents of the EU?.” The recent emergence of illegal immigrants in European countries have brought challenges to the European Union (EU) when confronted with its international norms and conventions and it’s important to study the challenges of EU asylum and migration policies and how they can be dealt with.
