A few years ago, the increasing number of young and promising Portuguese that left their homes looking for new opportunities abroad was a heavily discussed topic. The possibility of Portugal becoming a country of the elderly, without young people to think outside the box, was feared by those who stayed in Portugal watching their sons and grandsons leaving their family and friends behind.
Nowadays, the human migration has a worldwide dimension because of the developing refugee crisis. The number of those who have not survived the long and difficult journey to their destination keeps increasing and many are questioning whether the policy being followed is the best.
Is the distribution of refugees among the European countries fair? Should countries, which suffered terrorist attacks have the right to close borders? Should we forego the Schengen Agreement in favour of a greater border control?
