George Soros is the president and founder of Open Source Foundations that is an association of projects, partners and organizations in more than one hundred nations globally. He has a strong obligation to the idea where regimes are accountable, human rights are respected and where no single entity is a monopoly on the truth. This brings out the foundation as one of the rarest benevolent efforts in history.
George began his charitable efforts in 1979. He started by giving scholarship to South Africans. He helped weaken communism in the Eastern bloc in the 1980s by providing Xerox machinery to be used in replicating banned texts as well as supporting cultural connections in the West. After the fall of the Berlin wall, he created the University of Central Europe to endorse critical thinking. Through the open source foundations, he has prolonged his charity to Asia, Africa and the US. For more information visit Open Society Foundations.
Soros says that the European Union needs to accept the responsibility bestowed on them for the lack of a standard policy of asylum that has led to the growth of this year’s refugee influx into a political crisis from a manageable problem. Ever state member in the union has focused on their selfish interests. They frequently act in opposition to the interest of others. This has precipitated panic among all the asylum seekers, the authorities and the general public who are solely responsible for law and order. The primary victims are the asylum seekers. This isn’t the first time Soros has spoken against the EU’s actions–he was very critical of their handling of the Ukraine crisis last year as illustrated in this New York Book Review post.
The EU need to develop a comprehensive plan to respond to the occurred crisis. A plan that will reassert effective governance over the asylum seekers flows so as to take place in the overlay, safe, and a place that will reflect the European capacity to absorb them. For it to be comprehensive, the plan must extend beyond the European borders. It is less expensive and less disruptive to maintain the potential asylum seekers who are near their location presently.
Syria is the origin of their current crisis. The Syrian fate is to be their priority. But other migrants and asylum seekers must never be forgotten as well. A global response should accompany the plan as well, under the UN authority involving its member states. The Syrian crisis burden will be distributed over many states to establish a global standard for dealing with problems of forced migration.
The components of the inclusive plan state that the European Union must first accept a minimum of one million asylum seekers per annum. It should secondly lead the world effort to provide ample funding to Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. The EU refugee migration agency should straight away be built. Safe channels should be established for the asylum seekers. They EU must take up and assemble together millions of refugees every year. For more information visit MarketWatch.
