Solutions to the Migrant Crisis in Europe


Solutions to the Migrant Crisis in Europe  

Solution #1 ~ All refugees are given protection under the condition that all adults receive military training and then go to fight whatever problem they were fleeing that was causing them to become refugees in the first place. All Children are bound by this same conviction, and have mandated military service upon becoming eligible. Those that are ineligible for active duty will provide some service for their troops, even if it is simply hospitality. All migrants are expected to return to their home country after the issue that was causing their evacuation as refugees is resolved. Even if this was simply poor infrastructure or economic development, they can receive training as engineers, public servants, or merchants. 

Solution #2 ~ All refugees are given protection under the condition that all adults take up arms to fight in another crusade. This crusade will mercilessly conquer the Near East, and undoubtedly resolve the diplomatic issues that the people were fleeing in the first place. The countries will be re-established upon being conquered as members of a Near Eastern Union with strict protocols to ensure that the issues that caused them to flee as refugees do not recur. Again, all children have service mandated upon reaching a suitable age. Those fleeing Africa will be given citizenship in the Near Eastern Union for their service.  

Solution #3~ Refugees are given one or multiple “Embassy City” where the EU will protect them but not take them under the wing of the majority of their public welfare systems. This City will govern itself as a City-State and it’s residents will be it’s citizens as it is very much like a country. This is an autonomous Country, but it is still under the authority of the EU, and effectively property of the Host Country and European Union. The Embassy City can govern itself after this point.  

 The Embassy City citizens are allowed to enter the EU for travel and business, but cannot become residents or citizens of any country within the EU without proper paperwork and successfully completing the regular paperwork one must to gain the right to reside in a country legally. Any Refugees within the EU are also required to move to an Embassy City under the same regulations. The host country can decide what support it can offer the Embassy City in terms of things such as social services and commercial support, before the City becomes successful enough to collect taxes and sustain itself.  

The locations of these cities would be carefully selected, and debatably should be located on the borders of the countries, where countries with adjacent borders should locate their Embassy Cities within close proximity to each other, to allow for more uniform consolidation, and provide a larger workforce for these Embassy Cities. (E.g. the corner of Austria, Germany, and the Czech Republic).  

The Embassy Cities would be taxed slightly by their host country in order to pay for services such as military protection and the right to occupy the land. The host countries would build public style housing and the initial infrastructure in order to train the migrants well enough to fulfill the roles necessary for the upkeep and economic success of a community such as an Embassy City. The host countries could respectably seek contributions from Allies in order to fund these projects, as solving the migrant crisis is clearly in everyone’s best interest.  

 [ This solution may be the most practical, while the combination of this solution and the first solution may be the one that offers the most resolution to the issues at hand]
