Summary/Abstract: The European migrant crisis or European refugee crisis began in 2015, when a rising number of refugees and migrants made the journey to the European Union (EU) to seek asylum, traveling across the Mediterranean Sea or through Southeast Europe.. They came from areas such as Western and South Asia, Africa, and the Western Balkans. Contemporary migration flows create deep processes of acculturation whose consistency, stability and finality are based on a symbolical and subjective arsenal, represented by the democratic values promoted by the Western world. Besides the demographic and economic changes brought by the current population movements (real or virtual) there is also a notice able cultural change which affects the depths of societies (regardless of whether these movements are emigrations or immigrations) and which refer to the birth or the consolidation of a lifestyle based on the aspiration to prosperity, personal freedom and democracy, beyond racial, ethnic, religious, etc. differences.
