This may come across as trivia after Fraser Pearce's excellent and well informed post however I beg your patience with this.
I reckon accommodating the refugees needs to be funded by the EU otherwise throughout Europe it will cause deep resentment from those at the bottom of the ladder of opportunity etc. How to fund it? Well they could close Strasbourg and stop all that movement of MEP's and staff say for 3 years.
The refugees could be given temporary restricted movement visa/passports requiring personal presentation in front of police or a judge at say 2 week intervals otherwise the temporary visa/passport becomes null and void.
All expenses incurred housing, fuel, medical services, schooling, funded directly from EU funds. Housing provided in specially leased holiday accommodation and 2nd homes would be eligible for this and paid for by EU with long term leases of say 3 years.
Personally I'd prefer the refugees to be picked up in a cruise ship. assessed for legitimacy of status, skills, medical checks, physical and psychological needs etc before being allocated anywhere.
I think Eastern Europe will for some time to come have a considerable problem with accepting those they perceive as outsiders. For these states it is a transitional period after years under Communist rule.
I do think that this is a humanitarian crisis affecting the whole world and the whole world should be prepared to do its share. Let's not forget that the child who attracted the world's media attention had been turned down according to reports by Canada when his Aunt also a refugee from Kobane had applied for a visa for her extended family. Last night I read on the web that Iceland had offered to take refugees. I think more impoverished countries would take these poor people if money was available to fund their stay.
The war in Syria has been going on for 4years. Reports say that there is no end in sight. The most effective forces against Isis are the Kurds but Turkey is preventing them being adequately armed. It is not a situation that seems easy to solve.
Just some thoughts to throw into the discussion.
