Integrate & disintegrate? Ft. Kristiina Ojuland, Estonian Foreign Minister (2002-05)

The migration crisis in Europe has reinvigorated the integration debate, especially in predominantly mono-ethnic Christian societies. And though most recognize the need to take in refugees, many fear that they will stress the fabric of their societies and stretch their country's resources to breaking point. Can European countries find a balance between humanitarian needs and social pressures, and how much should the EU's role in creating those migration flows factor into its decision-making? Oksana is joined by Kristiina Ojuland, the former Foreign Minister of Estonia, to examine these issues.
