Migrant Crisis Series

145 Articles

Tens and thousands of refugees from war in Middle East, Africa and parts of Asia such as Afghanistan are piling up on European shores, hoping for the better days. Flow of refugee is so great that European migrant crisis is taking shape to be a much larger crisis than originally thought. In spite of not being an economic crisis, it threatens to break the back bone of European unity, so we strongly feel it demands greater attention. Hence this series is dedicated to Europe’s new challenge – the refugees.
