SDP Faculty Member’s involvement at Seminar on European Migrant Crisis

Pakistanis were found to be among the top 10 nationalities to opt for asylum in European countries in the year 2015, revealed Dr. Severine Minot, Assistant Professor for Social Development and Policy (SDP) at Habib University’s School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS), while speaking at a seminar held to discuss the refugee crisis staring the European Union (EU) in the face in the aftermath of the war in Syria.

Dr. Severine while speaking at the University of Karachi’s Area Study Centre for Europe (ASCE), on Refugee crisis as a challenge to European integration: social, political and security issues, claimed that Europe already received around 1.4 million ‘legitimate’ (legally admitted) immigrants in the years 2010-13.

Quoting from Eurostat, 2016, she said the “number of first-time asylum seekers in Europe steadily increased from 259,400 in 2010 to 431,090 in 2013 and from 625,960 in 2014 to 1,117,330 by September 2015”.
