    From a 🇪🇺 perspective, such support mustn't even be altruistically motivated.

    Providing refugees real long-term prospects within the region can serve as a sustainable alternative for those who consider costly & dangerous onward-migration to more attractive destination countries.

    🇺🇬 is one of the youngest countries worldwide—w/ an enormously growing young working-age population. These young people will need jobs.

    One could expect ppl. who struggle economically to have more negative attitudes toward refugees & other immigrants due to competition.
