  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Divided Europe seeks to overhaul defunct migration policies” – below is their description.

    Five years after more than a million refugees arrived in Europe, the European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen has admitted its asylum policy is not working. She told the EU’s members they must all share the responsibility for refugees – and take the pressure off Mediterranean nations like Malta, Italy and Greece. The UN says the EU’s efforts so far have often led to devastating human consequences. Even for migrants who have been granted asylum, the journey remains incredibly difficult. Al Jazeera’s Stefanie Dekker reports from Lesbos, Greece. –
