In fall 2015, the Center for European Studies hosted a panel discussion on the Refugee Crisis in Europe. In spring 2016, the situation has both evolved and deteriorated. The refugee crisis is still testing the limits of the European project. Is there hope for a solution to the refugee crisis in Europe? How is the refugee crisis changing the face of European politics?  The refugee crisis exposes tensions that have always been inherent to the European project: Where (really) are Europe's external borders? Just how much sovereignty are EU member states willing to give up? Can Europe create a "European" identity, not just for traditional Europeans but for those from immigrant backgrounds? How far do "European values" extend? And what is it like for the millions of refugees from North Africa and the Middle East washing up on Europe's shores and camping out on Europe's borders?
