The Migrant Issue Of Europe

Izaz Bin Azam, an international reporter of BBC, London, 14 December, 2016: The migrant issue of Europe has become very crucial over the decades. Political upheaval in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia is reshaping migration trends in Europe. The number of illegal border-crossing detections in the EU started to surge in 2012. The most recent surge in detections along the EU’s maritime borders has been attributed to the growing numbers of Syrian, Afghan and Eritrean migrants and refugees.
To manage the crisis, in September 2016, EU ministers agreed to resettle 130,000 migrants- a small fraction of those seeking asylum in Europe. This plan was approved despite the vocal objections of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. In addition to talking in larger numbers of asylum seekers, many experts say that the EU and global powers must also prove more aid to Middle Eastern countries like Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan, which have borne the primary responsibility for Syrian refugees. A ten-point plan on migration was adopted by the EU to address the crisis.
Now, the question arises – how far will the ten-point plan be successful?
