Many of the refugees in Europe are coming from countries in the Middle East and Afghanistan, areas which have recently been invaded, bombed and destabilized by European countries and arms export. With which countries and groups are we trading arms? And what are the consequences for the stability of the region? How big are our economic interests in these conflict areas actually? And how much do we know of the backround and stories of the refugee communities in Amsterdam and The Netherlands coming from these areas?
