The summer 2016 issue of Europe’s World features analyses of perhaps Europe’s greatest challenge – the migration and integration of refugees. Kenneth Roth criticises the panic of Europe’s refugee response, offering steps to quell the border crisis. And Vincent Cochetel looks at why refugee integration is better for Europe than the melee of divisive responses. Jan Čulík warns the political centre against complacency towards populist xenophobia, but Daunis Auers is convinced this illiberal turn will prove short-lived as the refugee crisis wanes. Afzal Khan, meanwhile, says that second- and third-generation immigrant communities must not be marginalised by new counterterrorism strategies.
The future of Europe’s health services is assessed by Nina Renshaw, who suggests a health warning for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. It’s also make-or-break time for Europe’s digital competition, with the US firmly in the lead – Alexander De Croo and Richard Tuffs review how Europe can get ahead. In the southern neighbourhood, Lapo Pistelli and Moushira Khattab each look at how the so-called Arab Spring has gone so wrong, and how Europe must drastically change its approach to set things right. And to the east, Europe’s relationship with China is studied by Jing Men in the wake of dispute over China’s market economy status. A triad of articles by Hanxi Chen, Takashi Terada and Joshua Walker also debate the best role for Europe in the South China Sea dispute.
