„Wir schaffen das!“ : Den tyska förbundskanslern Angela Merkels inställning till flyktingkatastrofen 2015–2017
Summary, in English
Merkel’s approach has simultaneously been both altered and unchanged during the three years. She stresses the importance of cooperation and equal contribution of the Member States concerning the division of refugees. She shows a strong belief in the constitutional state protecting Germans and refugees.

Merkel enunciates that there needs to be an international cooperation in the fight against escape causes. She makes clear that Germany has a strong economy and phrases in 2015 that the workforce is needed, in 2016, however, the migration flow must be reduced, and in 2017 she states that Germany must support the countries receiving huge amounts of immigrants, by supporting their economical development.
