Event description

Description

The unfolding refugee crisis in the Middle East and Europe has laid bare how European states and publics relate to people in desperate circumstances when they are from a country that is not their own. European states have tried to find ways to cope with the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people. Key questions emerge about how to address the influx of refugees, asylum-seekers and economic migrants in Europe.
