Description

Since 2014 the countries of the European Union have experienced a massive influx of migrants, refugees from conflicts, oppression and economic despair. It has been described as the largest migration of refugees since the end of World War II. This migration has created many difficulties for the receiving countries and the migrant population. As the migrants have come from different countries, they have varying reasons for their search for a new life in Europe. The sheer numbers of persons has created different political, social and economic problems for European nations and their populations. The problems vary—Turkey, Greece, the Balkan nations, Germany and the Scandinavian countries all face a variety of issues that are not common to all the nations.
