The Shirazi Foundation attended an event hosted by the Atlantic Council titled Challenges Facing Europe: A Conversation with British Ambassador Sir Kim Darroch. Experts explained the atmosphere in Europe and how it is facing challenging times. The migration crisis has become a stress test on European values. Experts made recommendations that one should take in refugees, but one should also focus on the problem of violence and extremism that creates the condition of the migrant crisis. Experts also mentioned that many have fled from other parts of the world for different reasons such as instability and in hopes of financial security, and what’s the best way forward to approach these complex issues. Experts discussed the existing direction is to build a new relationship between the new upcoming administration and to develop strong links in security.
