More than a million migrants and refugees have crossed into Europe since 2015, sparking a political and humanitarian crisis across the continent. As countries have struggled to cope with the exodus, the EU is experiencing further division and dissent over how best to regain control of its external borders and what to do with the large influx of asylum seekers. The continuing conflict in Syria remains by far the biggest driver of migration, however, violence in Afghanistan and Iraq, failed states, poverty, climate change and terrorism have created a crisis that is one of the major challenges to peace and security in Europe and beyond.
Please join us in a discussion with Ambassador Lamberto Zannier, the Secretary General of the OSCE, on efforts to deal with the ongoing migration and refugee crisis in Europe and reverse the trend towards radicalization that has led to terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels.
