March 13th: Leveraging fear.

On this episode, Frey Lindsay speaks to Lord Alfred Dubs about the halt of the Dubs amendment (which tried to bring unaccompanied child refugees into the UK, don’t forget), and the paltry excuses given.

Then, New York Times Magazine staff writer and Slate Political Gabfest host Emily Bazelon joins us to discuss the revised Trump travel ban, and how the courts are going to receive it.

And finally, we’ll hear from journalist Lili Bayer and Lydia Gall of Human Rights Watch on the unprecedented passing of a bill in Hungarian parliament that allows the government to intern all refugees in camps along the border. Even for Hungary, that’s a big move.

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.
