CULTURE SHOCK: MIGRATIONS, EXILE, AND THE REFUGEE CRISIS

A TRANSDISCIPLINARY EXPLORATION

 

"The refugee crisis is a human crisis: Behind the statistics are people filled with unique life experiences and dreams for the future. They are mothers longing to return home, fathers yearning to work again, children searching for a childhood.

We are witnessing a massive shift of humanity unlike any seen before. Today more than 68 million people around the world are displaced from their homes.

What does it look like for that many people to be displaced?

It would be like over half the population of Japan going homeless. Or everyone in the U.K. fleeing and leaving an empty nation behind them. It would be like the states of California and Texas slowly draining of every doctor, teacher, engineer and entrepreneur until there was only barren land left behind." -- Mercy Corps, 2018
