Abstract

The current crisis at the Greek-Turkish frontier due to the border openings as well as the Covid-19 Pandemic put a spotlight on “EU’s failure to agree on a common migration policy” and raises the question if the present EU-Turkey Statement is collapsing. A global crisis cannot be solved durably by using entry-point states as a shield for the EU and these challenges can no longer be solved sustainably by one country alone and not even by Europe itself.
