Hanaka Koyama's curator insight, September 7, 2015 9:50 PM

2011 Arab Spring --> overthrow the king --> conflict --> anarchy--> terrorized by ISIS 

Syria --> Turkey--> Sweden or Germany (EU countries, which have migrants policy)

 

Forced migration!

 

- overcrowded boats

- no life jackets

- expensive (from Botrum, Turkey, to Greese, it costs $1,000-2,000 per person, 25 min ride)

 

Solve the situation in Syria in the first place! They want to live in their home...

 

 

Kos, a Greek island is the place where refugees head first to go to Europe.

Lack of shelter and ever worsening hygiene conditions on the island due to the influx of refugees.

The lack of staff to conduct registrations is leading to blockage, which is further exacerbating poor conditions.

fears over outbreak of disease

needs to improve conditions for both refugees and the residents

to avoid the crisis, this issue should be internationalized on a UN level!!
