Thisted, Denmark

At an asylum seeker's holding camp Eric, 37, stands outside the tent he's been allocated a space in. He is from Iran, and says he is a Christian and had to flee his country because his religious beliefs. The journey took him 40 days from Iran to Turkey and through Europe until he finally reached Denmark. He doesn't know much about Denmark, but heard somewhere that it contains 'The world's happiest people'. The government wants to make Denmark less attractive for asylum seekers, so for the first time in the country, a controversial measure has been introduced where, in spite of the cold weather, tents will now be used to house ‎asylum seekers.
