Policy Brief on The Crisis of Mass Migration to Europe.
Migration has always been a process that brought about historical changes in different societies in the world. These changes were seen in terms of ethnicity, culture, language, religion on account of different groups coming into contact with the new societies. However, in this age of globalization, migration, and mixing has reached unprecedented levels thereby, leaving both migrants and host communities with many challenges. There are two fundamental issues that have arisen due to this enormous scale of migration - the regulation of European migration on the one hand, and its effects on increasing ethnic diversity on the other.
Context and Importance of the Problem
The current crisis of migration to Europe has touched epic proportions. The goals of New World Order seems to be getting fulfilled with this ongoing process as the war-making industry must have expected all of this well in advance when they started pumping a small country like Syria with weapons in a huge scale. Therefore, it is not coincident that Europe is getting flooded with immigrants on many levels continuously. The weapons supplied to this country are then ultimately used by the terrorist groups such as ISIS, AL-Nusra, FSA etc. in the adjoining areas in an enormous scale. Currently, as many as ten countries are fighting in Syria namely US, UK, France, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Russia, and China. Such an elevated war between terrorists and these foreign nations has created a catastrophe in the region and because of this, people are helpless and fleeing the region in order to save their lives. However, the story suggests there is more than what meets the eye (Favell, 2008). The evidence imply that the migration is not just about Syrian refugees as a shocking proportion of the migrants are not the real refugees. So, the current scenario of the mass migration to Europe is a living example of ‘order out of chaos’ objective of New World Order, which is to create confusion and disorder so that anyone could mold his/her ideal order.
Will the Mass Migration End in Disaster?
As we know the current mass movement is one of the biggest since World War 2 as it has gone absolutely uncontrolled. This situation has elicited different arguments from different walks of societies as some of the people have described this sudden mass migration to Europe of Muslim and Arab refugees as an invasion. Some people, on the other hand, have insisted that no person can be branded as an illegal entity, so it would be better to have a world without borders. The former argument can easily be brushed aside as racist or xenophobic, but to view it as a perspective of political incorrectness, there is certainly something to discuss on (O'Neill, 1997). If we consider for a moment: how well can any country and nation address the challenge of managing hundreds of thousands of migrants suddenly arriving in its territory and seek assistance. So, isn’t it a fact that the people already living there would then start feeling overwhelming and threatening, even if the migrants are well-intentioned. Fact also is, if the immigrants are resisted and opposed by the native people, the situation renders the formation of pockets of separate ethnicities as well as nationalities within a larger country.
Everyone knows, when all of a sudden, a country is forced into a war or is ruled by a brutal dictator, then the people would always find good reasons to flee their home country. Such a case doesn’t care about the pleasantries or ideal migration but a compassionate response on the part of people is always helpful. Now, there is a conspicuous element that is coming out in this whole story of the European refugee crisis, which is, not all the migrants are women, children and their families. In fact not everyone is a genuine refugee because as per the UN stats, 45% of them are not genuine refugees. Some of these refugees are getting involved in starting riots in the host countries (Smith, 2007). In view of this fact, ISIS has even claimed that it will use the mass migration to infiltrate European countries with its members.
There are four major gaps in the refugee regime that stand out, which require long-term policy development at national, regional and global levels, of course without compromising the interests of the native people. These gaps are:
1. Access: the immigrants are needed to have access to the asylums wherever they are formed. But it has not been managed in a proper manner and so, there is chaos at the European border and the subsequent loss of life in the Mediterranean. One solution would be a humanitarian visa system that allows asylum seekers to travel legally to a country in which they can claim asylum.
2. Sharing of Responsibility: the current refugee crisis in Europe demands responsibility and obligation on the states to provide asylums to the immigrants and refugees. Historically, this gap has been addressed through the UN secretary-general calling for a global conference (Betts, 2015).
3. Survival Migration: it is the de facto guideline that people leaving fragile states fall outside the 1951 convention definition but cannot in any way be described as “voluntary” migrants. Therefore, one solution would be to develop a supplementary “soft law” framework so that the meaningful and temporary protection could be effectively given to the refugees.
4. Market: Rather than just providing food, clothing, and shelter in closed refugee camps, we should be supporting refugee self-reliance through a development assistance fund that can simultaneously benefit refugees and hosts.
In the backdrop of the present ongoing crisis of migration to Europe, it can be stated that we can only unite if we have a deep respect for individual and cultural differences. So, people are needed to knowingly and willingly come forward with a free will in such a way that their individual and cultural differences are bridged. But it can also be concluded that a one world order of this kind of coercion and homogenization won’t work.
