Can Europe’s Politicians Solve the Migration Crisis?

Organised in association with The Europaeum

Auditorium Ivan Pictet A
Maison de la paix, Geneva

As Europe struggles to cope with its largest influx of migrants and refugees since 1945, and with over 3,000 migrant deaths since the beginning of the year, can countries join ranks on a coordinated, coherent response, or is the EU’s open borders arrangement doomed?
