This paper aims at explaining causes of key changes of European Union’s Common Security and Defense Policy (EU CSDP) characteristics as a reference object in relation to the five–year influx of migrants to the EU between 2013 and 2017. Author casts his assumption according to which the measurable outcome of a large wave of migrants from the Middle East and North Africa to Europe, as well as phenomena such as terrorist and other extremist acts, significantly influence and alter the nature of this supranational policy. Based on theoretical debates about forced migration, the author deployed a relatively new concept of regional humanitarian identity, which is based on norms and values of particular hosting states. The overall performance of the subdivisions of the region – the state, their institutions, and citizens – is conditioned by internal norms that arise as a result of traditional and cultural factors. Analytical and systematic presentation of the conceptual model identified numerous variables whose interactions significantly influence the functioning of a complex system such as the EU CSDP. After having applied systemic dynamics approach, author concludes that by changing the European Union’s regional humanitarian identity, a precondition for normative and institutional change of this policy was also made possible.
