British Arab Network Chairman speaks about Migrant Crisis on France 24 debate

20 Sep 2015, by BritishArab Network - In the Media


Dr. Wafik Moustafa, Chairman of the British Arab Network, has called for  a pragmatic, practical and effective policy to deal with refugees in Europe and Syria in a debate on France 24 (English).


What to do about the record wave of migrants? (part 1)

The Mediterranean has become a watery grave for far too many people this summer… and now the focus has drifted to dry land. Why is Europe the go-to place for all the migrants and refugees that are fleeing? How is the continent coping with this opening and closing of borders that we’ve seen? And how to absorb this record tide of people? Our panel debates these questions and more from MuCEN in Marseille.

Programme prepared by Yann Pusztai and Emerald Maxwell.
