Top 10 Migration Issues of 2012

The 2012 Top 10 was framed with an eye to the emerging trends rolling into the new year: Syria remaining the humanitarian crisis to watch; Greece’s far-right party Golden Dawn jolting public attention by gaining a first-ever electoral foothold in Parliament in 2012 even as far-right nationalist parties elsewhere may be muting the anti-immigration message in their platforms; and significant challenges ahead for EU Member States and the European Commission, not only relating to Schengen and the Common European Asylum System but also a more concerted humanitarian response to the Syrian refugee crisis affecting Europe’s neighbor, Turkey. MPI experts analyze these and other pressing concerns of 2012 in this issue of the Migration Information Source's Top 10.
