April 10th: The protracted nature of crisis.


Welcome to the Migrant Crisis Podcast, a show that tries to look deeper into the causes and effects of migration without being too dull. To that end, this is the second of a two-part series looking at: the worsening famine in South Sudan, the massive phenomenon of internally displaced people across the world and the effect of the Turkey-EU deal one year on.  If you want to hear us discussing the background and context of these issues, go back one episode in the podcast feed to the episode entitled “Famine is a catalyst for war.” On this episode, we are diving deeper into the realities of each issue, with the following people: -John Nott, specialist in the history of Food economics at Leeds University – Alexandra Bilak, the director of the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) in Geneva – Sacha Myers, communications manager for Save the Children on the Greek Islands, whose report details the life for children left stranded by the deal with Turkey.

The Migrant Crisis Podcast

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.
