Chapters 2 › Unit 2: SCROLL DOWN FOR INSTRUCTIONS View instructions Hide instructions


`Start by reading this article and discuss in your journal how current official definitions of "migrants", "refugees" and "asylum seekers" are challenged by the on-going migration crisis at the South-East borders of Europe.

You can also see Unit 2.1 for more information about irregular migration in Mediterranean region, Unit 2.2 about EU norms on asylum seeking, and Unit 2.3 on the case of Syrian refugees.

Don't forget to have a look to what others have done in their journals!

Resitance to change


Migrants,refugees and asylum seekers are people who leave thier countries to seek protection, freedom, shelter and even for better lives. They move to different countries with thier numbers being increased on daily basis. The people in the host countries have fear in them because they may turn to attact them in times of conflict with thier enemies." Therefore in my opinion the officials should be given a sense of understanding concerning the increasement in their revenues to boost the smooth functioning of their countries.
