W obliczu wzmożonej fali uchodźców i migrantów z obszarów objętych konfliktami, głównie z Syrii, Europa nie potrafi zaproponować wspólnego rozwiązania systemowego niwelującego ten problem. Kwestia uchodźcza podzieliła Wspólnotę, wzmocniła narodowe tożsamości kulturowe bądź religijne i skłoniła wielu obywateli państw członkowskich do refleksji nad postawą solidarnościową wobec migrantów. Działania pomocowe państw członkowskich Unii Europejskiej są różne w zależności od rządzących partii politycznych. W prezentowanym artykule opisano główne działania zmierzające do rozwiązania kwestii uchodźczej w Europie. (abstrakt oryginalny)

Faced with an increased wave of refugees and migrants from conflict areas, mainly Syria, Europe is unable to propose a common systemic solution to eliminate this problem. The refugee issue has divided Europe, strengthened national cultural or religious identities and made many citizens of Member States reflect on their attitude of solidarity towards migrants. The aid measures of the various Member States of the European Union vary according to the political parties in power. This article describes the main actions aimed at addressing the refugee issue in Europe. (original abstract)
