Europe: Germany and the Migrant Crisis

The migrant crisis has a solid grip on Europe. For months it’s been in the forefront of news accounts. As 2015 comes to a close, it’s apparent that the challenges and problems this situation poses for the EU are only the beginning. The continent faces ever greater numbers of people fleeing the third-world. The reasons are many, the problems they bring with them too. If allowed to go unchecked, they could prove to be insurmountable.
The essay encompasses many facts and figures, some scarcely known to the general public, even to those who are forced to live through the largest waves of human migration seen in this part of the world since WWII.

1.0 Europe

The number of asylum applications in the EU before 2014 peaked in 1992, with 672,000 people. In 2001, another big year, there were 424,000, and in 2013, the number rose to 431,000 refugees. There were 626,000 refugees in 2014. According to the UNHCR, the EU countries with the biggest numbers of recognized refugees by the end of 2014 were France - 252,264, Germany - 216,973, Sweden - 142,207 and the United Kingdom 117,161 (1).

From 2007 until 2011, Germany took 265,767 refugees. For comparison, France, which is bigger and has a smaller population than Germany, took 206,890, and the US took in a little more; 278,850 (2). This makes Germany the number two nation in the world accepting refugees during this time period.

Frontex head Fabrice Leggeri had already warned the EU in March 2015 of a massive increase of refugees ready to enter Europe. The German newspaper Welt am Sonntag quoted Leggeri; Our sources have informed us that between 500,000 and one million migrants are ready to leave Libya. Leggeri also told the German parliament in June that same year that the number of irregular border crossings from Turkey to Greece has increased by 550 percent compared to the previous year. The newspaper wrote that the German ministry of the interior and the chancellery were informed about the numbers (3).

Frontex, by the way, is portmanteau French, meaning Frontières extérieures, or external borders in English. Established in 2004, this European Union agency manages the cooperation between national border guards securing its external borders.

So, the EU was warned, yet didn’t heed it. The question is; why did they do next to nothing? Did they think that Greece, Spain and Italy—the three nations on the forefront of the EU, where the refugee would first enter Europe—would be able to halt the flood? Or did they simply not care? Did they initiate measures to help stem the coming tide? The EU did try to do something, as shown below, but in essence it too kept on slumbering. EU countries, such as Spain, Italy and Greece, had essentially been left alone.

It’s clear that this situation had been handled erroneously right from the start. The entire EU sleepwalked right into one of Europe’s greatest crisis since WWII.

1.1 Migrants Routes

In 2014, the migrants came almost exclusively from across the Mediterranean Sea. The nations mostly affected were Italy, Spain and to lesser degrees, France and Greece. This changed fundamentally in 2015.

Until June 2015, Greece and Italy shared almost the same amount of refugees, with both nations receiving around 68,000 people each. During the rest of 2015, another route became the focal point for migrants; the Balkans. It’s aptly named the Balkan Route in Germany, but called Eastern Mediterranean Route by others. After Merkel practically invited the world’s refugees into Germany, this route quickly supplanted the central and western Mediterranean routes, as the preferred way into Europe. The number of people urging to get there swelled to unprecedented size.

The Balkan Route was of importance simply due to the fact that now, heading Merkel’s call; many refugees were leaving their safe havens
