Refugees is a giant global problem consisting of at least 86,5 million fellow human beings.
Gallup World has published a survey, concluding that approx.. 750 miilion adults want to leave their homeland if they could. So the potential for a far greater refugee problem that the present is great.
There is a need for far more substance in the refugee debate if these problems are to be resolved. The present debate is about exploiting immigrants, asylum seekers and others with a different ethnic background as whipping boys to obtain political power.
The debate should be about finding out why so many people are so dissatisfied with their living conditions, that they choose to emigrate or have already made that choice. Not least: it should be about solving these reasons to stop the flow of refugees, and to rebuild their country of origin so that they will choose otherwise.
