Europe is now years into a refugee crisis of historic proportions, and, frankly, there's no end in sight. Even well-intentioned efforts to stem the crisis have struggled: One high-profile diplomatic arrangement designed to cut the migration route through Turkey and Greece into Eastern Europe appears to have unintentionally diverted refugees toward even more perilous journeys from North Africa across the Mediterranean. The Institute of Migration says at least 1,000 people have died making that journey in the past week alone.

This idea comes from Theo Deutinger, who runs the design and architecture firm TD, which is based in the Netherlands. (A country with some experience in creating artificial landmasses.) The firm is known for its experimental and theoretical work, which often focuses on issues of globalization. Deutinger dubs the project Europe in Africa (EIA), and it already has a flashy website that prominently features the enticing tagline, "The first truly European city."
Could be a good idea to have a haven for refugees attempting to get to Europe. Bet the European people will warm to the possibility of keeping more economic migrants at bay from flooding into their country's. "They can build as many mosques as they like, have as many blaring speakers that they want and fondle as many females as they like, without offending anybody."
On a serious note, this plan would have many hurdles to jump before it could get off the ground, if ever. Maybe it would have been good thinking around 10-15 years ago,hindsight is a wonderful thing. But now that the flood gates are well and truly open,not possible in my humble opinion.www.washingtonpost.com... -near-tunisia/?wpmm=1&wpinl_wv

Let me get this right. So some dumba>> wants to spend billions of dollars to harbor "refugees" who would then just use so-called haven as a jumping off point to to other parts of the world .

Never had any issues with refugees. But have heard and watched on the news plenty of places that have
Got a better idea . Pull a Trump and build a wall to keep them in their own countries....
Peace.

This is as stupid as China building a new island in pacific. Mind as will give it to China and say it is their Territory so no migrant invasion can come to Europe while the Chinese is blocking.

Sounds like a good idea at first. But since they call it a European city it must still be on European ground if this is ever realized. Meaning that anyone on the island will get a European passport of some kind after a few years as it the norm in European asylum law. Meaning that none of them will be send back because they made this island for them after all and after about 3 or 4 years an
y of them can enter Europe at will and go anywhere and they would have integrated just as bad over there as they are right now over here anyway with the one difference that they are not bothering/killing/raping any Europeans for the time being.

You may think so,and it's NOT the pacific, but to the Chinese it's "progress" in the South China sea standoff with surrounding countries.

Majority of them are not refugee's, they are opportunistic economic seekers.

They are Arab, they live Arab lives and live by Arab rules. They want Arab laws and Arab culture.

Why then did they take the long way to get to Europe, instead of just going to Saudi, where they could be amongst there own without any infidels?

Answer: they didn't come to Europe to settle, prosper and contribute.

In 10yrs this mass migration will be seen as a great changing event on the worlds destiny.

Surely it's simpler to return refugees to the safe refugee camps they have left from, and paid for by the UN (i.e. the West).

The whole asylum system has been abused to such an extent that it's pretty pointless now. Return them all.
