#AcrossBorders launched against the backdrop of a refugee crisis and a desperate situation for more than 60 million people displaced around the world.
Over the past month, we’ve explored the issues surrounding global migration and identified a series of best practices for effective interventions — now and in the future.
In the above video we revisit some of the most important discussions from our expert interviews for each week of our #AcrossBorders journey. These include calls to action, including the need to tackle the root causes of migration, how the international community should respond to the refugee “crisis” in Europe, and why effective resettlement programs and the creation of sustainable livelihoods is so important on the road ahead.
The effectiveness and impact of the international response is under the spotlight, and the path to a stable future remains a work in progress.
How do we get there? The conversation continues at #AcrossBorders.
Across Borders is a monthlong online conversation hosted by Devex and partners — World Vision, the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department, the U.S. nonprofit partner of the International Organization for Migration and United Nations Volunteers — to analyze and amplify the discussion on global migration and current refugee crises through the lens of global security, development cooperation and humanitarian aid work, and more.
