Join us for the next event of the IIHA Spring 2016 Lecture Series, “Challenges & Opportunities: Global Migration in the 21st Century” as we screen the latest BBC One documentary featuring Dr. Alexander van Tulleken (IDHA 16), “Frontline Doctors: Winter Migrant Crisis.”

“Chris and Xand van Tulleken – doctors, part-time aid workers and twin brothers – want to see for themselves what conditions are like for migrants fleeing through Europe at the height of winter. Over two weeks in early January, Chris and Xand travelled to Lesbos in Greece, through the Balkans and on to Berlin and Calais to understand what’s being done on a medical and humanitarian level in response to the current refugee crisis. Spending time with medics, charities and volunteers in camps and clinics, at border crossings and transit points, they wanted to find out what the situation is like on the ground and, wherever possible, lend a hand during the biggest migration crisis of our times.” (BBC)
