EU leaders met in the Maltese capital, Valletta, on 12 November 2015 to discuss (yet again) how to respond to the migration and refugee crisis that threatened to pull the EU apart. Their summit would follow a meeting on 11-12 November 2015 of EU and African leaders, who focused specifically on the question of migration from Africa. In October 2015 alone, a record 218,000 refugees and migrants crossed the Mediterranean.

Strategic Europe asked five Carnegie Europe scholars, each with expertise on a particular region, to respond to a specific question about how the refugee crisis was affecting different parts of the globe.

+ Does the refugee crisis expose the vulnerability of the Western Balkans?

+ Will countries in the Middle East and North Africa cooperate over the refugee crisis?

+ Is Russia exploiting European disunity over the refugee crisis?

+ What does the refugee crisis mean for Turkey’s new government?

+ Is the EU prepared for huge migration flows from Africa?
