Europe’s Migration Crisis

Europe’s Migration Crisis | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
The European Union needs a unified approach that would distribute the financial and social costs of coping with refugees more fairly.

 

Unusually calm seas in the Mediterranean and stagnant European economies are contributing to a perfect storm over migration.

With the euro zone’s economy sputtering, countries simply cannot cope with a surge of migrants and asylum seekers. Yet the European Union is dragging its feet on forging a more unified approach to migration that would distribute the financial and social costs of coping with refugees more fairly. Last month,the United Nations said the rising death toll of migrants desperately trying to reach Europe required urgent action.

Part of the problem is the European Union’s Dublin Regulation, which makes the country on which an asylum seeker first sets foot responsible for processing that person’s claim. Southern European countries are on the front lines, forced to deal with a disproportionate number of migrants arriving from North Africa.

Another problem is a treaty between Britain and France that allows British border guards to check passports in France. With Britain a prime destination for many migrants, Calais, the French port city, has found itself overwhelmed with new arrivals, mostly from Sudan and Eritrea.
