Talk on Europe Under Refugee Crises


Refugees are a natural consequence of war; indeed, there has seldom been a war without civilians trying to flee from its carnage. But what causes the wars? In some cases, demands for regime change. After all, the regimes being overthrown are often brutal, and unlikely to back down without a fight.

Syrian people are the one have faced this case in recent years. This circumstances pushed them to flee from their mother lands to seek shelter from neighbouring countries. As a matter of fact more than four million refugees of the Syrian Civil War have left the country during the course of the war. Most of them fled to neighbouring Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq, while thousands also ended up in more distant countries of the Caucasus, the Persian Gulf, North Africa. The refugee crisis began in 2011, when thousands of Syrian citizens fled across the border to neighbouring Turkey and Lebanon. Then it spread widely all nations.

Europe was strongly faced this refugee crises in the third quarter of 2015. Almost 200 Hundred Thousand Syrian people walked through Europe for a hope. But there were many other difficulties were waiting them at the each gate of European Countries.
