Abstract

The massive flow of asylum seekers, most of them from third countries such as Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Eritrea, led the EU institutions to recognize in April 2015 the exceptional nature of the situation, calling unsuccessfully for the adoption of solidarity measures to overcome the catastrophic humanitarian situation in the so-called "frontline Member States", such as the Hellenic Republic and the Italian Republic. In this context, the European Commission's Pact on Migration and Asylum of 23 September 2020 represents a package of proposals that incorporates previous measures advanced by the Commission after this migration crisis. Despite the expectations and premises of the new Pact, it retains an emergency and state-centered approach that has so far characterized the measures adopted by the Union. Therefore, article wants to show that the crisis is still ongoing and, for certain aspects, unresolved and unsolvable, because it is a deeper crisis that concerns the values of the Union which is intended differently by the EU Member States.
