It has been pointed out that in a sense, the European migration crisis could and even should be attributed to Western inaction in the Middle East. As of March 15, the Syrian civil war has officially entered into its 7th year, with a death toll of 470,000. There has been some Western intervention but none on the front lines to stop the fighting. Syrian refugees initially fled to neighboring nations such as Turkey and Jordan, but more so made their way to Europe. It is important to recognize that people most often do not leave their homes unless they feel as though it is not absolutely necessary and the best option. Moreover, because of the variety of stances on the migrant situation within the EU there is confliction for the EU in finding a policy that will deal with the migration crisis in an effective and coherent manner. This is an attributing factor to why the subject of immigration is politically delicate in Europe over North America. An example that proves this delicacy could be seen with the nation of Hungary. Hungary has faced criticism for past actions it has had against incoming migrants. The New York Times reported, “The Hungarian riot police fired tear gas and water cannons at hundreds of migrants…The use of force by the Hungarian authorities, a turning point in the migration crisis, drew criticism from the United Nations” This event highlights the tensions of individual nations within the EU and with the European Union as a whole. Also, the reaction to this event caused for varying attitudes and overall confusion for European leaders in terms of understanding what the unified solution to the migrant crisis is and it was seen to intensify animosity among nations. Within this context, it is noteworthy to point out that the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) has recently published a report in support of immigration and integration. This can be seen as an effort to shift how the situation is framed from the level of individual nations and more towards the EU as a whole. FRA director Michael O’Flaherty can be quoted saying, “the migrants living in the EU are not part of a “crisis”, but an integral part of our society. We need a new narrative that stresses the benefits that migrants…bring to our societies…integration is key to our security and to our democracy.” The Effect of the Radical-Right Political orientation plays a major role on views of migration. 9 In eight of the ten EU countries surveyed by Pew research, it was found that those who identified with the political right are more concerned about refugees as a threat than those on the political left. 9 This >GET ANSWER
