Changes in EU and Hungarian Asylum Policies Are Needed, CEU Team Finds at 2015 Allianz Summer Academy

Five CEU students and recent graduates investigated "how EU values connect with crisis responses in asylum policy, and how these responses are received and translated in the national arena through the critical case of Hungary" in Open Borders, Closed Minds: EU Asylum Policy in Crisis, their final report presented on August 2 at the Allianz Summer Academy on Europe (ASA). The general topic of ASA 2015, Europe at a Turning Point: Economic Crisis, Social Disintegration, Political Change, provided a perfect framework to discuss the shortcomings of contemporary asylum policy, both at national and EU levels.
