    Abstract

    Comprehensive and reliable statistics on refugees in Europe are difficult to assemble. It is estimated, however, that between 1987 and 1997 that the number of refugees world-wide increased from 8 - 1 5 million. This means on average that every 21 seconds a refugee is created. In 1938, the American journalist Dorothy Thompson wrote that: “A whole nation o f people, although they come from many nations, wanders the world, homeless except for refuges which may at any moment prove to be temporary.” (Marrus 1985: 3). Unfortunately, these words are still applicable today. Few can deny that there is now a refugee crisis.
