Abstract: Seven years separate the refugee crisis in Europe due the conflict in Syria and the flight of Ukrainians by the Russian invasion. However, the European Union's reception of refugees has been very different in both cases. Since 2015, European migration policy has been defined by divisions within the Union, a focus on closing borders and the externalization of migratory control to third countries, which has meant the deaths of thousands of people and the homelessness of so many others. In the case of Ukraine, though, the European response has been supportive, robust and unanimous, keeping its borders open and promoting measures to facilitate reception. This change has been reflected in public opinion and the media, as well. The image of Ukrainian refugees in the media is that of white, educated, middle-class people, whereas in the case of the Middle East, was one of threat, migrant invasion or terrorism. This paper reflects on the political and symbolic dimension of refugees in Europe based on the case study of the Syrian exodus and Ukrainian one. With a propositive vocation, it will consider the need for a change in migration policies and the subjectivity of European citizens, guaranteeing the rights of people who are forced to flee violence, misery or poverty, regardless of their origin or the colour of their skin.
