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.

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.
