A POPULATION expert has warned “large waves” of migrants are preparing to head for Europe – with a “tinderbox” situation leaving the continent on the brink of collapse.
While migration figures are declining in parts of Europe, Reiner Klingholz believes now is just the calm before the storm.
The head of the Berlin Institute for Population and Development said: “The large waves of migration have yet to come. Measures such as the Turkey Agreement and the closing of the Balkan Route ensure that currently only a few people come to Europe.
“The causes of the refugee crisis, however, have not changed.”
He warned there was a “tinderbox at the gates of Europe”, with huge numbers of migrants preparing to travel from a large swathe of land stretching from West Africa to West Asia.
These areas, Mr Klingholz said, were particularly effected by high population growth and low economic opportunities, combing to push migrants towards Europe.
He said: ”The forces that are driving more and more people from their homes – weak states, big tumults within the Islamic world, a divided international system. None of these things are likely to abate soon.”
