Summary: The EU could receive many more refugees. Even five million is only a 1% increase. However, it is not about logistics or percentages. The perception is that this mass of humanity will disturb the equilibrium. The EU has continually produced guidelines and yet is incapable of conquering the refugee crisis. The EU needs to manage the inward flow intelligently by facing the future rather than preserving the past or being preoccupied with the illusion of ever growing wealth.
