George Soros has been speaking a great deal about the current migration problem in Europe. George Soros has noted in an article for Market Watch that the absence of a coherent asylum policy has led to many of the problems currently be experience. Those problems have been described as chaos.
Soros mentions on NY Books that the European Unions is supposed to be a collective of countries working towards everyone’s best interests. Soros suggests that selfishness on the part of the members has contributed to avoidable problems. Basically, each and every member state is seeking to serve its own individual interests.
Soros suggests a reliable plan designed to slowly absorb migrants into the various nations is a must. The lack of any cohesive plan is causing a lot of the confusion and unrest.
George Soros feels one million asylum seekers per year should be brought into the European Union. The distribution of the asylum seekers must be evenly distributed throughout the member states. No one country should be overwhelmed while another country is allowed to skirt responsibilities.
Additionally, the European Union must direct money to Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey to aid the millions of refugees currently residing in those countries. Improving care for these displaced persons – displaced due to wars in Syria and elsewhere – could help eliminate a number of problems.
The setting up of an EU Asylum and Migration Agency along with an EU Border Guard would further help the cause. Soros is quick to mention the governments of the countries in the European Union should not be required to carry the burden alone. Private sector enterprises including for-profit and non-profit entities must lend a proverbial hand.
George Soros is definitely someone who understands organizational and management skills. He managed a powerful hedge fund, and he currently runs the Open Society Foundations for progressive causes. Soros has also put a lot of time, money, and work into a host of philanthropic causes over the years.
