Abstract Europe’s response to the so-called “refugee crisis” has revealed its cracking as a supranational project not only in its monetary and economic dimension, but also in its political and coexistential aspects. The rising of exclusive nationalist approaches, emerging partially as a demagogic response to the neoliberal policies of the European Union, fuels the allergic rejection of the different, and leads to the dehumanizing and self-destructive pathology of xenophobia. Abandoning this perspective entails, in the words of Lévinas, “finding the Other without allergy, that is, in justice”, recognizing the Other in his/her humanity and treating him/her as his/her dignity demands. Faced with nationalist and neoliberal discourses, the survival of Europe as a project requires articulating a truly hospitable policy in accordance with unavoidable ethical demands. © 2018, Universidad del Zulia.
