The refugee crisis exposed the limits of cooperation, solidarity and democratic principles in Europe. The EU is failing to deliver an effective collective response and live up to its values. A paradigm shift is essential to address this dangerous trend.

Gerald Knaus of the European Stability Initiative think-tank advocates a common European migration and asylum policy and effective control of external borders, respecting international and EU refugee law.
