A global responsibility
The current migration to Western Europe is unparalleled. In the summer of 2015, Europe experienced the highest influx of refugees since World War II. In 2015, an estimated 60 million people were displaced globally, with approximately 50% of these people under 18 years of age. The main reason for this large influx is that Syria has become the world’s top source of refugees as a consequence of the Syrian Civil War. In addition to the Syrian refugees, large waves of migrants and refugees from other countries in Asia, Africa and the Balkans are migrating to Europe in the hopes of escaping conflict, bad governance and poverty.
