Author Matthew Carr speaks to Socialist Review about the political significance of the current refugee crisis on the borders of Europe.
There has been a lot of talk by the media saying this is the biggest reefugee crisis since the Second World War. What do you make of it?
On one level it’s true. It’s the largest numbers of refugees since just after the war. It is a major refugee crisis, although really it’s been brewing for some time and it’s a rather belated recognition of how serious it is.
