In this paper the author using the example of the refugee crisis questions whether the political functioning of the EU and its Member States corresponds to the construction of the Normative Power Europe Theory. The legal and institutional framework for European (supranational) policies on immigration and asylum is in existence and has been enforced for some time. With the advencement of the acute phase of the refugee crisis in 2015, it was demonstrated that the existing legislation did not generate the common policy. Responses of the European Union and its individual member states to the challenges that were brought by the refugee crisis are divided between the efforts to turn Europe into a well-guarded fortress that will protect its security, resources and culture on the one hand, and moral obligation (in addition to legal obligations) to provide the necessary assistance and reduce the suffering of refugees, on the other hand. Furthermore, the author analyzes the pragmatic political agreement between the EU and Turkey, based on which influx of migrants arriving on the Greek islands has drastically been reduced and the security of the external borders of the Union has been strengthened. In exchange, the EU will be forced to tolerate more aggressive stand of Turkey in world politics. In conclusion, what makes the refugee crisis genuine European crisis is not an enormous number of incoming migrants and refugees to the shores of Europe, but revealed deep divisions within the Union which prevent the adoption and management of the unified policy. If there is no a genuine consent between the Member States in terms of basic common values and principles, it is difficult to enforce the perception of the European Union as a community of values from which it derives its normative identity.
