    Refugee and Migrant Crisis in Europe

    A major displacement crisis started in Europe in 2015, when over 1 million people made their way to European states in an effort to escape violence in their home countries. Most of the refugees come from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

    The crisis has put a strain on European economies, raised security issues within the EU as well as caused an upsurge in social tensions.
