THE SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS and the EUROPEAN UNION CONDITIONALITY

 The aim of this study is to advocate the idea that the European Union (EU) should

develop a new refugee policy which is appropriate to human security and impose this policy

under the conditionality principle to the countries which are engaged to the EU by negotiating,

candidacy or Stability and Association Agreements (SAAs). Especially with the start of the civil

war in Syria, the situation that EU could not manage the refugee crisis that firstly Turkey and

then the Western Balkan countries faced, caused serious political crises. In particular, Turkey

and Macedonia were the most affected countries within all the candidates. Moreover the

refugee crisis has created a serious discussion within EU members, besides the existing fault

lines, the impact of the crisis was influentially connected to the Brexit demand in UK, and then

the future expectations of the EU. The basic claim of the paper is, the discussion about the

refugee issues will create a need for a transformation in the EU's security strategy. One may

suggest that the EU firstly should determine a wider common policy on refugees, secondly

under the conditionality principle, the EU should develop her acquis towards candidate

countries compatible with the new Common European Asylum System.
