Is “Refugee Crisis” a Fair Assessment of the Situation in Europe?

Refugee crisis, global refugee crisis, migrant crisis. While Europe is no longer seeing the same numbers of people arriving on the continent’s shores as in 2015, the language still persists around us. And even then, was crisis an accurate labeling of the situation, and what consequences does this terminology have?

Look out for….

  • Crisis of responsibility
  • Crisis vs a generational problem
  • Legal obligations
  • Afghanistan and Kabul
  • Cannot return people to a country at war
  • Regional solutions
