Eye on the world: Home for all

In “In Paris, refugee crisis puts new strain on city’s homelessness problemThe Christian Science Monitor reports that “the influx of migrants in France, and especially in Paris, has put pressure on an already strained emergency housing mechanism.” The mass migration from war-torn parts of the Middle East and Africa to developed European countries is depleting government resources, which further complicates the challenge of helping an already growing homeless population. “Migrants who, as they wait for their asylum requests to go through, find themselves on the streets of the French capital, adding to an already serious homelessness problem in Paris.” However, the populace is dispatching solutions: “In a yearly contest that allows Parisians to send in their ideas for how the city should spend 5 percent of its budget, a project to provide more adequate housing won out over all others. So while many say there is still not enough housing to go around, the city is rising to the occasion.”
