The post-2014 'migrant crisis' focusing mainly on the European Union`s southeast periphery where the so called Balkan Route1 exists, has demonstrated that the degree of integration and solidarity among EU members is not as deep and complete as expected. Attempts to outsource the crisis to its periphery impacted also on the relationship of the Union with EU candidate countries. The lack of a common EU policy and reluctance to share sovereignty became evident among EU members from early on. This has in turn led to a demise in the credibility of the EU, its fundamental principles like solidarity among its member states and protection of human rights, as well as, its institutions. The Erasmus+ Jean Monnet project MIGRATE CTRL + Enter Europe – Jean Monnet Migrant Crisis Network2 looks into the developments in the Balkan Route pre and post the EU-Turkey Statement and the responses by the individual countries inside this framework.
