End of the Caliphate: Documenting the fight to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria – 2016 -2018

Seeking Shelter: Syrian refugees in the Middle East and Europe 2012-2016
After five years of war in Syria almost half of the population has now been displaced. Nearly four million people have fled across its borders to the surrounding countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan, while more than six and a half million are internally displaced. Hundreds of thousands have now also made the perilous journey to Europe, mainly across the Aegean straits from Southern Turkey to the Greek islands. For the first time since World War II the global number of refugees now exceeds 50 million with Syria being the worst affected country followed by Afghanistan. It is the greatest humanitarian emergency of our era.
