Abstract

The European Union has seen millions of asylum seekers cross into its borders in the 21st century. This event has pressed individual EU nations to accept a portion of the arriving asylum seekers in order to assist the union in tackling the inflow of seekers. However, each nation's generosity towards accepting asylum seekers varies tremendously. This paper will test to see if nationalist tendencies in the population of a nation have an influence on the nation's asylum seeker generosity in the current migrant crisis (2005--2016). It will then investigate the Czech Republic that follows the paradigm set forth in this thesis. Finally, it will examine the unique case of Austria as to why this nation is the biggest outlier in the paradigm set forth.
