Treating migration as a security problem that can be defended against will fail. One thing that everyone should have learnt from the recent migration crisis is that people will risk everything for a better life for themselves and their families, especially when they are fleeing war. Refusal to accept this fact will have terrible consequences for relations between Europeans and Africans, and for people who attempt the dangerous journey though the Sahel and North Africa, across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. Europe needs a long-term migration strategy, but policymakers are preoccupied with short-term initiatives, which will cause more problems than they solve.
