Abstract [en]

Since the beginning of the Arab Spring in 2011 and the spillover effect leading to the Syrian Civil War, the European Union has had several new challenges on its path in the field of migration. New policies and measures were adopted in order to manage the situation, including the in 2015 proposed Readmission Agreement with Turkey. The aim of this paper is to understand the changes in migration policy from the European Union through the perspective of an interethnic security dilemma, leading towards the establishment of this deal. Through trend analysis and comparison of policies over time, this thesis seeks to prove that the concept of interethnic security dilemma, build upon existing principles within the realistic school of thought, provides understanding of the logic behind the changes. The thesis contributes to the field of humanitarian action and conflict by providing a different understanding of the factors involved in migration management within the very contemporary context of an ongoing migration crisis. The field of migration management and the policies shaping it, are of essential importance to this already existing humanitarian crisis, and others worldwide. Understanding the driving forces behind it, could possibly provide a new theoretical view on possible alternatives.
