Our own Michael Wolfe wrote this vital piece on the refugee crisis for Huffington Post, what he calls a “pocket-size summary.” Here’s what Michael says about the piece —
“I wrote and posted this article on Huffington Post, hoping to guide readers through the thicket of pieces posted on MOST in the last few months on Immigration: From Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq through Greece, Hungary, and Poland, to Germany, France, Scandanavia, and Britain, and on to North America.
It’s a dizzying subject and the flood of commentary can get confusing. I tried to cut a useful swath and sum up 6 months of breakneck developments, to bring clarity to the biggest flight of refugees across Europe since WWII. From the New York Times to the UNHRC, from Al-Jazeera to The BBC, MOST has been posting good reporting on this subject since it began a year ago.
My article is a kind of pocket-size summary of that reporting. I hope it helps writers, producers, reporters, and general readers get down to facts and brass tacks. There are refugees’ voices and personal stories here too— a goldmine for story lines.”
