Most Europeans remain concerned about illegal migration
Analysis by Szabolcs Janik
In “Project Europe”, a large-scale survey conducted by Századvég, 30,0000 people were asked questions in connection with migration. It has shown that European societies agree on the broader issue of migration in a number of important areas.
For example, the majority clearly sees the current migration targeting Europe as economic immigration and expects the European Union to take more effective action, including a more successful border protection. The distribution of asylum seekers is already revealing the division between “Westerners” and “Easterners”, pointing out one of the important reasons why quotas should not be a way out of the migration crisis for the EU and its member states.
