Views on migration

By Duncan Mil

September 14, 2015 - EU interior and justice ministers are to meet in Brussels on September 14 in an effort to find concrete measures to cope with the escalating migration crisis.

Most Europeans hold a “negative” attitude to the migration of people from outside the EU, according to the latest Eurobarometer survey of public opinion. Only Sweden holds a distinctly “positive” view.

Unprecedented numbers of migrants are reaching EU borders, surpassing 100,000 in July alone and reaching more than 340,000 this year so far. Italy and Greece are struggling to cope, while Macedonia has declared a state of emergency.
