De verlegenheid van Paul Scheffer

immigration, crisis

An enlightening and balanced (and Dutch) interview with Paul Scheffer, noted Dutch publicist on Europe and culture. He discusses the current immigration crisis, and mostly, why it will stay current for a long time. He had to overcome his shyness, verlegenheid, to take on the difficult implications of current immigration policies and tries to discuss what a reasonable way forward can be: wir schaffen das is unlikely to stand the test of time.
