Borders of convenience: European legal measures and the migration crisis.
Arnell, Paul; Lyons, Carole
Q. M. Zaman
The migration crisis has posed fundamental questions for European institutions. Amongst these are whether EU human rights reality matches its rhetoric. The answer is a resounding no. The reaction of the EU to the crisis has entailed an abdication of responsibility, in part through adopting convenient new external ‘borders’. One response to this development has been a jurisdictional extension of human rights protection by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). This chapter exposes both the EU response to the crisis and the attempts by the ECtHR to re-impose responsibility on European states.
