Europe has become a refuge for the disregarded and persecuted people in the regions of war and conflict all over the world. The whole of Europe?

Especially in Eastern parts of Europe, a majority of the populations balk at the reception of refugees – while their governments make use of this tense atmosphere by strengthening an increasingly populist and authoritarian style of politics.
