Miitarising Humanitarianism

Austria's newly elected conservative Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said the EU should consider other ways to tackle migration crises and formally end "failed" attempts at redistributing migrants across the EU under a quota system.

He has instead proposed that the EU consider providing support "militarily" to refugees by establishing secure conditions in their countries of origin, in what appeared to be a call for so-called "safe zones."

"If redistributing refugees isn't possible, then they should be helped in safe areas on their own continent," Kurz said. "The EU should support that, perhaps even organize it, and back it militarily."
