Generosity and sense are key to framing migrant response
A huge amount of EU time has been spent dealing with the Greek crisis. Rightly so. But much more time needs to be spent discussing how best to deal with the refugee crisis.
At the same time as it copes with an economic crisis, Greece, like Italy, finds itself on the frontline of the refugee crisis.
The number of illegal migrants arriving on Greece's shores, and specifically on its islands, is up five-fold compared with this time last year. Figures show that 156,726 would-be immigrants are now in Greece and the Greeks don't have the resources to cope.
