For the left-wing parties in Central Europe, the refugee crisis was not simply a one-off emergency situation that needed to be momentarily managed. The mass arrival of refugees in the region created entirely new political framework conditions that compelled the parties to fundamentally rethink their policies and values. In this book, FEPS and Policy Solutions present studies from Austria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary to analyse the approach of the Central European left-wing parties towards migration, with the aim of identifying a common pattern, understanding motives and drives, and formulating recommendations on how to deal with the refugee question and other issues related to migration in a progressive way, consistent with the fundamental value of solidarity.
