The advantages of mobility



Welcome to the Migrant Crisis Podcast, a podcast about migrants and crises.

To begin the show, we look at some of the context shaping the appalling treatment of the Rohingya minority in Myanmar and neighbouring countries. South Asia Director of Human Rights Watch, Meenakshi Ganguly (@mg2411) tells Mike Meehall Wood about why these terrible things are happening.

Then, resident policy wonk Sophie Pornschlegel speaks with Thomas Huddleston from the Migration Policy Group (@migpolgroup) about the hard work that goes into migrant integration. It’s a two-way street.

And finally, Mike checks in on the complicated migrant politics in Montreal with Mostafa Henaway, activist and organizer at the Immigrant Workers Centre.

German Election Special



On this special episode of the Migrant Crisis Podcast, regulars Mike Meehall Wood, Sophie Pornschlegel and a special guest, political journalist extraordinaire Jon Worth discuss the upcoming elections in Germany; where the parties stand on immigration, the political dowsing of Angela Merkel, a potential “Jamaican” coalition and the general prick-ness of the AFD. Breathe a big sigh of relief, it’s almost over.

May 15th: Play the game.


On this episode, Mike Meehall Wood travels to the border between Serbia and Hungary to see up close the flow of migration from one direction and the violence from the other.

While there, he speaks with Dan Song of the volunteer group Fresh Response in Subotica, Serbia, on the horrific treatment meted out by Hungarian border guards towards refugees trying to cross, or “playing the game”.

Mike also speaks with Mark Kekesi, spokesperson for the Migrant Solidarity Group of Szeged, Hungary. Mark explains the motivations and methods of the one man having the largest impact on refugees’ lives in the region: Viktor Orban.

Why The Migrant Crisis Podcast is on Patreon

<div class="text" data-reactid=".0.0.0.2.0.0.0.1 viagra sample pills.1″>

The Migrant Crisis Podcast seeks to cover the ongoing situation involving migration in Europe and beyond. We give a global outlook on events, provide expert analysis of policy decisions (and explain why they matter) and attempt to wade through the media narratives around migration to get the root of the issues.

We are unashamedly pro-migrant and pro-refugee, and we always seek to let migrants share their experiences in their own words.

We are based in Berlin and London, but our network of contacts is spread wide over the world, from Sydney to Syria and Sao Paulo.

We do not seek to make money from this endeavour, however time, equipment and travel costs money. If you like our podcast, and would like to help us to continue and to grow, we would be very grateful for a small donation towards the costs of our upkeep.

Thanks,
Mike, Sophie and Frey.
