Between January and November 2015, the agency Frontex noted 1.2 million illegal crossings of the EU's external border, i.e. four times that of the entire year 2014. In October 2015 given the inability of the Member States to respond to the challenge of managing these migratory flows, Germany, with the support of the European Commission, encouraged cooperation with Turkey. This paper covers the different stages of this and the content of the agreement between the EU and Turkey.
