European countries are struggling to respond to an unprecedented surge in desperate migrants, the largest movement of people Europe has seen since 1945. The largest group of people come from war-torn Syria but there are many from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, Eritrea, or Kosovo. The growing crisis has led to politically charged arguments about Europe’s open borders and sharing the burden. Disputes are heated not only about definitions of ‘migrants’ vs. ‘refugees’ but also what obligations – legal, moral, etc. - European states have in dealing with this crisis.
