An article by Daniel Trilling in The Guardian highlights 5 myths about the Refugee Crisis. One of the myths is that the crisis is over. Although arrivals have decreased and governments have limited the movement of undocumented migrants within the European Union, the reality is that thousands remain in reception centres or camps in southern Europe, while others attempt to settle in new places.
Another important myth highlighted in the article is that "we can neatly separate refugees from economic migrants." Trilling states "most of us are economic migrants - even if within our own countries – but the term has taken on a new and pejorative meaning since the refugee crisis."
