Should the demographics of Europe become more (yes) or less (no) diverse?

  • Diversity is positive

    Diversity is the way of the future, and homogenizing the way that countries identify ethnically is an old form of bigotry that needs to stop. The larger and broader the demographics in Europe and, indeed, the world get, the more likely it is to achieve racial harmony between different people.

  • Europe will benefit from greater diversity.

    The term "diversity" has a variety of meanings, and some kinds are better than other. The mantra of diversity is not a virtue in and of itself, but a diversity of ideals, perspectives, and opinions. A diversity of trades, crafts, innovation and ideas are a benefit to any nation. Europe can only become greater if it encourages diversity of thought.

  • Yes, more diverse.

    The demographics of Europe should become more diverse because diversity is a good thing and helps us to relate to other cultures and understand them. It creates a more peaceful place to live and world to be apart of when we are able to except everyone even from different races, religions, and gender.

  • Europe is Europe

    Asians are for Asians, Africa is for Africans, Europe is for Europeans. "Diversifying" Europe will actually decrease the diversity of the world. We should work to preserve the identities of different people's and countries and that'll give us a truley diverse world. If we diversify Europe, Europe will lose it's distinct identity. Countries such as America and Canada are for diversity, but I firmly believe Europe should stay homogeneously European.

  • Europe is diverse enough as it is

    Unlike what you read and think about Europe, we are diverse enough. Why? Let's see.
    Within the European Union, there are 23 officially recognised languages. North America has how many - 5 (USA has no official language)?
    Europe also has ethnic diversity. Most borders, especially in Eastern Europe, show where one ethnic group ends and another begins, each having its specific customs and culture.
    Some countries, like Russia, have multiple indigenous ethnicities living in it in their respective regions.
    Europe is very diverse. With the Schengen open borders and the increased trade more countries became more mixed as Germans, Brits, French and Spanish moved around and eastern Europeans flocked to the west after 1989.
    Do we an external push for even more diversity? No.
    We need to preserve this diversity by preventing the homogenisation of the many ethnic groups.

  • No we should not have to make europe diverse.

    Europe has always had a proud history, with very little. Immigration to speak of. Europe already is diverse as a continent, from russia to sweden, to germany to france, all the cultures differ alot and all sum up to european culture. I assume the question seeks to ask if europe needs more culture outside of europe. The answer is no, we dont need nor should we want them. Most other cultures colide with our. Keep europe european. Same as china can stay chinese, and saudi arabia isnt forced to adhere to other cultures, europe shoundlt either.

  • No, Europe does not want or need it.

    Diversity as in 'ethnic diversity' has added nothing positive to Europe and multiculturalism has been discredited as a practical ideology by the decade long study study undertaken by Harvard professor Robert Putnam. With the voluminous social problems associated with multiculturalism, It has since been denounced by both Angela Merkel and David Cameron(Leaders of Germany and the UK respectively)

    Europe isn't the dumping ground for the world's strays, it is a continent with a myriad of established cultures, customs and peoples. I see no tangible benefit to the people of Europe in allowing a debunked ideology and failed social experiment to further continue.

  • Let Europe be for Europeans

    There is no reason the demographics of Europe should become more diverse. Unlike the United States, which since its origins has called for immigrants from all over the world, European countries are homes to specific cultures of poeple. Those cultures should remain as they are. Forcing diversity just doesn't make sense there. No one calls for diversity in Africa, so what is the big deal here?

  • I feel Europe should try to hold on to its original ethnicity

    I think that distinct ethnic groups are being destroyed by inter-racial marriage. A lot of this is caused by immigration of non-Europeans to the area. Diversity is good until one group starts to overtake the original group. In earlier centuries, they did it by waging war and literally taking over a country, such as the Anglo-Saxons did with England. Now they do it by flooding the countries with immigrants.
