GES Video: Challenges of Migration
War and terrorism have driven millions of people from their home countries in the Middle East and beyond. As more and more of these refugees try to find refuge in the EU, European states should be rising to the challenge. Sadly, only some governments have shown any readiness to welcome refugees. This problem can only be solved if EU member states overcome their disagreement about distributing the burden of housing the new arrivals. Only if Europe’s nations work together can they deal with their greatest challenge since the Second World War.
Please find more information about the discussion of migration at GES 2015 in the corresponding session ‘Migrants Knocking on Europe’s Doors: Towards a Coherent Response to Irregular Immigration.’
