THE EU SHOULD OPEN ALL BORDERS FOR THE REFUGEES FROM THE BATTLEGROUNDS - PROPOSITION Hunger, insecurity, death in the Mediterranean, exploitation, impossible life conditions. All of these terms are describing the current events taking place in front of EU’s doorstep, where the refugees have fled to after the chaos in foreign countries. The second chaos on their path for a better life. Team Ravne will prove that the EU has s duty to guarantee a better life for these people and also that it will have a positive impact on the EU itself. All of this is happening on the ground of democracy, where they maintain the human rights. And today, we are proudly standing on the side if the human rights, on the side of the people. Firstly let us emphasise,…show more content…

If we take a look at the correlation between the manufacturer and the consumer, we can see that the refugees are consumers as well. And so with more consumers we need more manufacturing of products, which mean more job openings, for if we need more products we need more workers. Also the basic theory of economics states that competition for the workplace is welcome. Said competition encourages productiveness, which we all know results in better products, which again is responsible for a better economic state of the country and that again leads to new job
