ESI's Gerald Knaus presented the latest proposal on how to deal with the humanitarian crises on the EU's Mediterranean borders – from the Aegean to the Central Mediterranean; how to replace the Dublin system for asylum with a fair European system that Germany, Italy, France, and Greece will all find attractive and which actually works; and how pro-European leaders might win elections on a platform combining empathy for refugees with control of irregular migration.

Alan Grant is an Irish photographer who travelled extensively in the Balkans and other countries and regions of the world. Thanks to him, ESI is able to show fascinating pictures of the Balkans: the facades of Tirana, the painted mosques of Travnik, the fabulous old houses of Plovdiv and the spectacular blue of water - dark in the Bay of Kotor, emerald in the river valleys of Bosnia, deep blue in Ohrid, twinkling in the Aegean Sea and on the Bosporus.
