2015 has confronted the internal and external security of the European Union with 
extraordinary challenges. The situation beyond the EU’s southern and  eastern borders 
is determined by crises, conflicts and even war. By implication, more than a million 
people set out from the Maghrib, the Maschriq, and Africa, from the mountains of the 
Atlas as well as of the Hindukush for Europe. Crammed with human cargo an almost 
uncountable number of boats attempt to pass the Mediterranean Sea between Gibraltar 
and Greek islands like Kos every week. Parallel to this, thousands of people move 
through the Balkans towards the center of Europe. Their individual fate is as 
uncertain as the overall development of the process. Beyond mainstream buzzwords 
like "refugees", "smugglers" or "border guards" Christian Ehler and Lea von Martius 
differentiate the true variety of actors, their motives, and their modi operandi. 
Based on the evaluation of current findings from official agencies such as Europol 
and Frontex as well as on extensive scientific results the experienced European 
politician and the researcher evaluate how the EU can cope with the challenge 
in the long term.
