- Jacqueline Bhabha: Europe shows a Janus face to migrants
IIH Executive Committee member Jacqueline Bhabha writes on EU immigration for the Financial Times:
There is still a refugee crisis in Europe: a crisis of protection, of care, and of social inclusion.
Today, neither Greece nor the EU have the resources or the political will of [Germany’s] initial refugee response.
Refugees in Greece “confront the withering consequences of Europe’s diminishing sense of compassion through the evictions, destitution, despair and growing xenophobia that they must face every day. How long until fellow Europeans realize that this crisis, on its own doorstep, is their crisis too?
