Refugees in Film: A Series



During the past year, newspapers and other media outlets have been filled with dramatic captions and grim images capturing the human drama of the refugee crisis that has overtaken Europe. But while it is the European refugee crisis that has the world’s attention right now, the refugee crisis is a global phenomenon.

Worldwide, in 2014, the number of forcibly displaced people was at the highest level ever recorded, standing at 60 million. In theory, refugees are protected under the 1948 Declaration of Human Rights and the 1951 and 1967 proclamations relating to the rights of refugees. In practice however, political responses across the globe have revealed not only the severe limitations that many nations face in accepting and processing mass flows of refugees, but also an unwillingness to undertake such an attempt.  Moreover, the politicization of the refugee issue is polarizing migrant receiving societies.

Forced population displacements are likely to remain a long-term (geo) political and humanitarian concern. Furthermore, given the current tenor of US presidential campaigns, the refugee crisis and the plight of migrants will also likely remain at the forefront of national and international policy debates.

Dates: TBA
