The Migrant Crisis Podcast

The advantages of mobility

The Migrant Crisis Podcast
Released on Oct 15, 2017

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.
