if they start to leave the country.
How do you think other european countries will react to any migrations?
Until you do that, the question is kinda weasel-wordy and Mail-esque.
1) Inner europe (eurozone) 1a) established 1b) newer eastern joiners
3) geographically european
4) extra criteria - the balkan states to the north that do not have wealth but could be entry level into more prosperous countries.
5) ukraine n other ex soviets
or lets do them all
n) czech rep
you can then tack on
because they feel that despite the upheaval, it is far more likely to be better somewhere else.....i.e. somewhere else is likely to be less inytolerable than where they are
a refugee is someone who is forced to leave because of a natural disaster or political upheaval endangering their lives or because of a war or something.
I imagine there may be an upturn in Greek outward migration but as I understand it that has been happening for a while now, because there was (some) controversy over the economic diaspora being ineligible to vote in the recent elections.
unless they want to dismantle Shengen and the right of movement.
there are maybe 11m in Greece, while the EU population is over 500m. it's a tiny fraction.
that is why I am asking the question.
a large portion of Western European economices runs on cheap Eastern labour
there will be disaster,
I was being simplistic, because to the people moving it ammounts to intolerability. It is other people who differentiate between migrant and refugee....it is also impossible to define where one ends and another begins (see also freedom fighter/insurgent/gorillas :D)
Greece is not the Sudan. I doubt we'll see, for instance, reprisal killings in the streets of Piraeus.
Maybe a massive population bleed is will - although that looks like it has been ongoing, a cursary googling gives a 2011 census figure around 1m lower than than the 2010 estimate. But, I wonder what effect it will have, if almost 10% of a country's population can leave in 12 months and the rest of the world barely notices.
I just thought that there might be lots of people who will start to get hungry/starving and homeless.
I guess Im seeing it from the point of view that starving homelessness is the same to the victims irrelevant of the cause, thus i was using the term refugees, but I guess if this isnt likely to happen then its OK.
perhaps its a mental condition of mine :(
I wasnt meaning refugee in the legal terminology that is argued over, i meant it as a descriptive term, as in someone seeking refuge.
