European Asylum is a Diverse Story by YAAY visualizing complexity
The so-called refugee crisis puts the EU to the test and gives an impetus to extreme political currents. But how many refugees are we talking about? Where do they come from?
We elaborated a fact-based data story about the emotional topic in order to provoke a differentiated discussion on refugees.
Each diagram shows the percentage of asylum seekers relative to a country's population (inner circle), the amount of asylum seekers per 10,000 citizens (beam length) and their country of origin (colour).
