3 thoughts on managing migration & supporting refugees in a globalised world

First of all, the problem of immigration is important for the cohesion of the union. I am not only talking about the people coming to EU from third countries and looking for a better future and a quality of life they do not have. In this case, the answer of modern social democracy should be decisive. Integration and widening of human rights, especially in countries where their policies are more claustrophobic and anti-European. I speak much more about the internal migration of citizens within the union. While this is, in principle, productive and promotes the framework of a European citizen moving without borders in relation to the past. However, it creates strong imbalances and challenges for the equal development of EU members as important human capital is transferred from countries that need it to countries that already have it. This is where social democracy has to respond and support countries facing youth unemployment problems with mechanisms that re-cycle resources and projects with high added economic value especially to countries facing braindrain. Regarding the problem of refugees, the union has done a lot, but that does not mean that more cannot be done. As my country has become home to thousands of refugees from Syria, I can say that food and accommodation are not enough. If we really want to help these people and say that we belong to a union that respects people, we must first of all make these people equal members of the society where they can offer and create. This can only be done effectively with bottom-up projects involving both the union citizens and the refugees in order to produce the necessary osmosis.
