The migrant crisis that has stemmed from the ongoing strife in the MENA region is one of the most devastating and consequential crises
in modern times. Its impact has been felt across continents, in countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan, along with European Union (EU) member states and the United States. In addition to unprecedented regional humanitarian challenges, the crisis shook Europe to its core by challenging its political institutions and humanitarian values. The rise of populism and Islamophobia in the West, in general, is closely associated with the migrant crisis that has pushed countries capacities to their limits.
