Impact on migration
Over the past centuries, there has been a positive migration balance; More people have entered Europe than left the land.
The western part of Europe has always had more of a migration number compared to the east. One reason is because the west began to mordernize quicker while both east and west had ethnic conflicts of the protestant transformation. (These conflicts took years for people to overcome!)
However, The main reason is because the western has a cool climate, consisting of the atlantic ocean's winds and currents while the east had harsh climates and frequent earthquakes as well as volcanic eruptions.
Demographic results show that most people moved towards the west as it had better resources, climate and vegetation. This also began the period of time (renaissance) when new sea routes(such as Christopher Columbus's voyage) were found. THIS marked the time when the WHOLE WORLD began to have a strong connection to Europe. Soon, it was the most powerful to have began a new phase in history. Thus, the physical features of Europe play a huge role in Exploration, migration and connection.
After world war one, Europe was running huge economic problems. Since many foreigners came into the land, they began to settle over there. Soonthey used resources and millions of 'migrant workers' occupied the region. By this time, not only people from Africa and the Americas came here, but also people from Turkey, Yugoslavia and the Indian subcontinent.
It can also be said that Europe's location is the perfect determinant of migration;
