Poster-Amsterdam WEBRefuge Europe – Do we need a more welcoming asylum policy? This is one of the most important questions the EU has to ask itself, considering the houndreds of thousands refugees that try to seek for asylum in Europe. How much can we take in? Is the current policy sufficent for the challenge?
