Briefing: Robots will not replace workers that soon


Hello, and welcome to VoxEurop newsletter.

There's been a lot of talk about massive job losses because of workers being replaced by robots. If there is little doubt that is going to happen sooner or later, it is also true that technology has created more jobs than it destroyed, and that new skills will be needed, notes Gazeta Wyborcza.

Meanwhile, tiny Malta is shaken by one of the largest political crises of its history, with top officials quitting one after the other and the PM also under huge pressure after new revelations on the murder of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. We get a feeling of the local mood thanks to the Times of Malta.

Speaking of politics, the age distribution of Romanian voters from abroad during the latest presidential elections tells a story about how emigration patterns from the Romania changed over time. On a different kind of migration, EUobserver (and EU auditors) makes an important point about the European refugee relocation system. Lastly, as some people leave their land, and others are stuck on it, Alternatives Economiques' Vincent Grimault looks at the soil question from a different perspective: we have an issue with land artificialisation in Europe.
