The conflict in Syria has started the largest refugee crisis since World War II. Syria is a country with around
22 million people, from this number with the start of the Syrian civil war, 200,000 people have been killed
including 8000 children, 7.6 million are internally displaced people, 3.2 million are refugees and 12.2 million
people are in need of humanitarian aid. These enormous numbers have had an impact not only on the
neighboring countries of Syria like Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey but also the impact was enormous on the
European Union countries and on the international community. The critical challenges and the areas of
intervention from the international community and the EU are legal and physical protection, providing
shelters, health, education and employment for the refugees. These are not the only obstacles of the refugee
crisis there is the economic, political and social and the security pressures. For all these obstacles the
solutions are, all the EU countries should work together to help the refugees with the creation of improved
legal and institutional framework for asylum and migration, the EU must resolve the inadequacies of Dublin
that regulates the entry of migrants and redefine the human rights implications and also reinforce the security
policies in order to stop or prevent the emergence of nationalist or racist movements and terrorist attacks.
Keywords: Refugee crisis, Syria conflict, EU, foreign and security policy.
