Abstract [en]

At present, Europe faces an unprecedented inflow of refugees which confronts it with great challenges. Germany is particularly affected by the high number of refugees and its accompanying consequences. The aim of the thesis is to show how the refugee crisis was securitized and why the high number of refugees and its accompanying effects on social life led to a modification of internal and external security measures in Germany. The thesis presents the developments during the refugee crisis in Germany and their effects on German security as well as the measures introduced to address the problems. Thereby, the securitization theory is used to analyze the events and measures taken accordingly.

The analysis concludes that the security measures were modified to react to a changing perception of the refugees by the German population whose opinion changed from a ‘welcome-culture’ to a demand for a restricted refugee intake due to the events described in the findings part.
