#EuropeChats Episode 8⃣ is about to premiere on @YouTube! 📺

This episode we're joined by @MichaelKaeding, co-editor of "European Solidarity in Action and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals"

Together with @_PaulSchmidt and @JohannesPollak, Michael has co-edited the book, which analyses 41 European countries from the perspective of European #solidarity - but the main question is: "does European solidarity actually exist?"

"On the one hand you have Ireland being showered with #solidarity during the #Brexit negotiations; on the other hand you have Poland which sees European solidarity as a one-way street"

- @MichaelKaeding from @unidue

🔴We are not satisfied by what we heard here today. The numbers mentioned are a bit off: We heard that there are 15.000 people in #Lesvos, while the Greek government speaks of 7.500. What is going on here, exactly?>>>⬇

@SyrizaI @Left_EU
Mr. Meimarakis, representing the @EPPGroup, said he is satisfied with the closed centers we are paying for. Mrs. @YlvaJohansson, are we building closed centers after all? These are essentially concentration camps.>>>⬇

The European way of Life of Mr @MargSchinas & the new Migration Pact consists of inhuman detention conditions, of zero sanitary conditions & of small portions of low-quality but exceedingly expensive food.>>>⬇

Below is my prediction for what would happen if #Azerbaijan achieves a complete military victory in #Nagornokarabakh. Tl;dr: there still won’t be #NKPeace (1 of 11)
2. #Azerbaijan will announce that the #Nagornokarabakh Oblast is no more. The idea of autonomy will be gone. Azerbaijan will invite Armenians back to live as Azerbaijani citizens. None will go back. (We’re assuming that the remaining 60k civilians will safely escape to #Armenia)
3. #Armenia will have a #refugeecrisis. 150k + 400k from the 1st war means 550k refugees. The new rhetoric in Armenia will be how #AzerbaijaniAggression took the homes of these 550k people. To Azeris reading this, just think of the rhetoric you’ve heard regarding your IDPs.

1. Nobody wants to say what needs to be done about the #RefugeeCrisis. We have allowed this hemisphere to become hell for many people and should not be surprised when they try to escape. The crime is the result of years of corruption amplified by the US thirst for illegal drugs.
2. We need to run up the white flag and declare the #WarOnDrugs lost. I would take control of the opiates on the street provide maintenance drugs and treatment to everyone afflicted. All people who obtain the public drugs would be put in treatment. Addictive drugs like opiates
3. cocaine and amphetamines get priority treatment. Pot would be legal for over 21. No drug abuse would go untreated. Nobody would go to jail for being a drug user. Nobody would make any money from selling illegal drugs. No income would be made by central american gangs here.

The rhetoric of big numbers ('there are 200 milion migrants we need a global response') is producing unplanned side effects. Rightwing parties are using it to mobilize voters against the 'invasion' by foreigners
#CharlesMichel resignation

theguardian.com/world/2018/dec…
There is huge confusion on what the #GlobalCompactForMigration is for and what it can do. It is NOT about the 220 million migrants in the world. This figure includes everyone who has left their country of origin for more than 12 months, is also someone who left Italy 18 years ago
What the #GlobalCompactMigration is really about is an infinitesimally smaller number of people who are moving now and what countries could do (it is not binding) to manage this mobility better.

The #refugeecrisis in #Calais:
Families and many unaccompanied minors.
"Criminal gangs operating and huge risks for the children who we saw slipping off into the woods to hide, spending the night in the cold. Children at risk of sexual exploitation..."

"Almost every day, the French police conduct what they call ‘cleaning’ – dismantling camps and confiscating all the tents, blankets and sleeping bags. Raids in the middle of the night mean that people live in constant fear."
"There is a hostile environment that is dehumanising and abusing desperate people a few miles from our shores. We should be ashamed." -
@LabourSJ on the realities of #Calais camp.

Sea arrivals in #Spain are increasing.
But the closure of a #migration route doesn't mean that automatically migrants just move to a different one. There is little evidence of a 'route replacement' trend.
#migrationEU
This is an important reminder that 'immigration policies' can affect migration flows but are hardly the only factor at play. The drivers of #migration are multiple and can't be reduce to the political will 'at destination'.
There is an overall and significant decrease in sea arrivals, which should be a warning for everyone still using the word 'migration crisis', but this is not the case, see newint.org/features/web-e… #Salvini #Italy
