A European tragedy
With a growing number of countries in the Middle East and Africa in political and economical instability, many people leave their home in order to start a new life in Europe. The reasons are diverse, and so are the people leaving for Europe. After the route to Europe became more and more accessible through Turkey and the Balkans, Europe suddenly had to deal with the influx of hundreds of thousands of people. Many poor countries along the route couldn’t handle the sheer amount of people arriving.
By summer 2015, a human tragedy was on the brink: Hungary closed its border, making Croatia and Slovenia the next transit countries for people seeking refuge in Central Europe. The European Union and its members are facing the biggest crisis since they have been established.
