Since the European Union's migration crisis peaked in 2015, the number of illegal migrants arriving in the EU has fallen by 95 percent.Yes, Europe's current asylum policies, which put the burden almost entirely on the countries that receive the most migrants, have failed. Building on the aims agreed by EU leaders, it is imperative that EU governments now conclude their work on the five legislative bills – on reception conditions, asylum qualifications, resettlement, the European Asylum Support Office, and Eurodac (the fingerprint database for asylum seekers) – already agreed with the European Parliament.Nationalist forces within individual EU member states have used migration in Europe for their own partisan purposes.To do that, Europe must evolve institutionally, so that it can respond more quickly and effectively to common challenges.Maybe this time, with a political crisis over migration erupting three years after migration inflows peaked, that lesson will finally be recognized.
