    To Allow or Refuse Entry: What Does the Law Demand in the Refugee Crisis at Europe’s Internal State Borders?
    in German Law Journal , volume 18, issue 3 ,  2017 ,  617-629
    The following Article deals with the issue of whether the Federal Republic of Germany is responsible for examining the applications for international protection of third-country nationals who, since the start of the European refugee crisis have arrived at the German land border or, alternatively, whether Germany is obligated to refuse entry to such persons and relegate them to an adjacent transit country. In most cases, this would require Austria, in particular, to examine these applications for protection. The position outlined in this inquiry may be applied to all internal borders between European Union Member States.
