The year that passed away marked the migratory crisis in EU like no crisis before it, with more than 1 million asylum-seeker embarking on perilous journeys to reach the EU borders. Due to the geopolitical situation in several of the EU’s neighbouring countries, there has been an ongoing asylum seekers since 2008 but in 2015 was reached a record number of asylum seekers risking their lives on perilous journeys to Europe which often do not stop at the EU’s external border but continues into the EU. Due to mixed flows of asylum-seekers and irregular immigrants, it is often difficult for national authorities to establish at the arrival or interception of immigrants at sea whether they are irregular immigrants or rather persons entitled to seek international protection. As a result,the EU faces an unprecedented migratory crisis and are struggling to find durable solutions. This paper aims to examine the refugee crisis and the EU’s response to asylum seekers and to reach the purpose of this paper will be a combination of empirical and analytical approaches.
