Abstract

Slovakia’s Prime Minister, Robert Fico, defended his opposition to refugee quotas in a statement delivered to the European Parliament on 5 October. Katarina Lezova writes on the domestic debate over the refugee crisis within Slovakia. She notes that while the country’s criticism of the quota system has generated controversy at the EU level; within Slovakia itself there is relative unity among political actors, with most opposing the principle of quotas and arguing that it stops short of tackling the real migration problem being faced by Europe.
