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)

The term open-source refers to a decentralized model of production whose process and final result is freely available for the public to view, edit, and redistribute.
The open-source model is often presented in contrast with more centralized models of development such as those typically used in traditional industries and companies, where the creative process is usually confined to labs or R&D departments and the final product protected under copyright or any similar patent.
