Subject to unprecedented external migratory pressure driven by conflict, instability and poverty in its neighbourhood, the EU has been adapting its policy framework to cope with this protracted crisis situation. Although, in the absence of an EU-wide tracking system, it is not possible to establish the precise number of persons who have illegally crossed EU external borders, Eurostat does provide detailed statistics on asylum applications. Growing in number since 2006, applications have increased steeply from 2011 to 2015
