Summary/Abstract: The migration, refugee crisis that has reached Europe in 2015 has created new challenges and has raised many questions about the migration policy of the European states and the EU itself. The crisis has not only posed policy questions about the immediate answers of border control, the mechanisms of the Schengen area and the Dublin regulations, but has also led to questions about long-term policies such as integration. One of the most important political rights of the citizens of the democracies of Europe is to participate in elections in order to decide the political directions of their states and local communities.
