Myth: If they want EU funds, Eastern European members must tow the line on Brussels' migration dictates

Apr 25, 2017 - Zoltán Kovács

In today’s information-saturated world, we encounter a number of arguments and story lines that become popular and oft-repeated despite having almost no basis in fact. They sound compelling and have many people who would very much like to believe them, but they’re not true. The longer they linger, however, the more they get in the way. These myths deserve to be busted.
