About this resource
Since the beginning of 2014, approximately 800,000 people have arrived at EU borders through irregular channels, fleeing conflict and violence at home or in search of a better life abroad.

Meanwhile, the lack of an adequate response by EU governments has left hundreds of thousands of refugees and other migrants increasingly vulnerable.
This policy brief outlines key facts relating to the migration crisis and offers suggestions on how governments can mount a more effective response.
