Yves Bertoncini, director of the Jacques Delors Institute, debates during a panel about the refugees and identity crises in Europe during the “Seasons of migrations from the South” Forum organised by Carnegie Middle East Center à Beirut on the 22 and 23 March 2016.
PANEL VI | Europe and its Other
The large influx of refugees is placing European countries under considerable strain, posing a fundamental challenge to the very principle of the union of the Mediterranean advocated by the European Union prior to the crisis. Speakers will consider long term challenges posed by the refugee crisis including issues of identity and integration as well as more recent security-based questions both in terms of homeland security and foreign policy.
