As the war in Syria moves into its ninth year, millions of displaced people continue to flee the region seeking protection. Europe is portrayed as facing an enormous crisis with thousands of refugees flocking to its shores. The media shows hundreds and thousands of refugees trying to enter into the European Union showing a lack of preparedness of the continent for the new arrivals. In light of this enormous humanitarian disaster, this paper proposes to determine why the European Union has been ineffective in dealing with the Syrian refugee crisis since the onset of the Syrian civil war. It involves an examination of several EU policies and shared agreements with nearby states hosting the largest populations of refugees. The goal of this thesis is to understand whether the Common European Asylum System, European Neighborhood Policy and the EU/Turkey Refugee Deal impede or assist the ability of EU member states to effectively handle thousands of refugees at their borders. I argue, evidence shows that the EU struggles to effectively deal with the crisis within its member states due to a lack of alignment in policy implementation, which hinders efforts to establish durable solutions, ultimately leading to evolving negative social opinions of refugees within Europe and influencing new leaders coming to power across the Union.
