"Politically significant pieces of journalism"

— It's Nice That

We learn why some Cuban asylum seekers are being drawn to Serbia, as entry to the United States has become more difficult; and hear how the residents of La Roya responded when thousands of asylum seekers suddenly arrived in their otherwise quiet valley. We visit Calais, a city known to most only as the former site of the “Jungle”, as it attempts to rebuild a troubled tourism industry; and newly-arrived asylum seekers share their mixed experiences as they navigate British society. We hear from those who call Ireland home while having a dual sense of national identity; and we visit Istanbul as record snowfall brought the city to a stop.

Calais Belle Ma Ville

Calais has become synonymous with some of the most controversial aspects of the "refugee crisis" and is known to most only as the former site of the "Jungle". Now efforts to rebuild a troubled tourism industry are underway – but not everyone agrees on the direction.

We learn why some Cuban asylum seekers are being drawn to Serbia, as entry to the United States has become increasingly difficult.

After Arrival

Having travelled across Europe to reach the UK, asylum seekers then face a second journey as they adjust to British society. It is a journey that can often be as physically and mentally challenging as the first.

After the Snow

Istanbul has been through a lot in recent years. But in January 2017, as more than a foot of snow began to fall, everything came to a stop.
