Last week, the Danish parliament backed a controversial law to confiscate asylum seekers’ valuables in order to pay for their upkeep. Under the new legislation, police will be able to seize valuables worth over 10, 000 kroner (€1, 340) from asylum seekers to cover expenses on accommodation or food. The law was widely criticised by human rights groups as well as the United Nations Refugee Agency,

How would Europeans feel if a similar asset confiscation law was passed in their own countries? Recent research conducted by YouGov in seven countries shows majorities in Germany (62 percent), Finland (55 percent) and the United Kingdom (54 percent) would support similar legislation in their own nations. Interestingly, support is lower across Scandinavia with Denmark itself divided on the issue.
