This blogpost aims to analyse the importance of solidarity in European Union Law through the lens of migration policy. It highlights the different approaches to migration ‘crises’ from 2015 to the most recent Ukrainian refugee outflow, questioning the interpretation of this principle and pointing out the flaws in its use. In this analysis, it questions civil society’s role in responding to migration ‘crises’, and how it impacts the choices of European Union Member States regarding their own solidarity obligations.
