In 2020, $ 175 billion was spent on the consequences of global warming and environmental disasters. Thousands of victims and millions are forced to migrate due to wildfires, floods and storms. But the environmental crisis pales against the backdrop of the pandemic and its consequences. Racial conflicts and heightened structural inequalities complete the picture today.
These and other reasons lead to the fact that people move in search of a better life and the number of migrants every year. And migration is inextricably linked with border crossing. National, cultural and personal.
The mechanisms that are in place now are ineffective. They are based on the old paradigm of nation states and their interests. These problems cannot be solved separately, a systematic approach is required. And since crises are global, systemic in nature and they need to be solved together.
