The beginning of the 21st century has brought the world an escalation of terrorism, which has particularly affected the seemingly safe Europe. In the recent years the Old Continent has seen the influx of both refugees and economic immigrants at an unprecedented scale, and the conflicts in the Middle East which have not been resolved for years and the widely understood poverty in Africa are conducive to terrorism. It all gives rise to the urgent need to strengthen the systems of population flow in Europe, which can be done by developing a common census system, common national and European or temporary identity card for residents of Europe, and by strengthening population control in this respect.
