DG anthology: Europe’s migration crisis
During 2014 the number of migrants and refugees forced to leave their home countries due to conflict and humanitarian crises reached nearly 60 million worldwide. The trend has continued to become the greatest displacement of people since the end of World War II, and with a huge proportion seeking to enter Europe from countries outside the EU, it has triggered dramatic social and political upheaval across the continent.
It’s one of the biggest stories of our time, and since 2015 we’ve been covering it from the perspective of those directly caught in the tide: refugees, migrants, the people trying to provide them with aid and the people trying to smuggle them across borders.
