Via Huffington Post – “As the gateway to Europe, Turkey has more migrants cross its border than any other country in the world. Since the Syrian Civil War began in 2011, Turkey has been flooded with millions more refugees. With Turkey’s system overwhelmed, migrants from countries other than Syria have little chance of being resettled anytime soon.”
“This project is about those millions of others — asylum seekers and migrants from places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and throughout Africa — who have fled war and repression, but are often caught in limbo.”
“STUCK follows their journeys through Turkey’s two-tiered immigration process, and reveals the complex system faced by non-Syrians as they try to start new lives.”
This story was published at HuffPost Canada. STUCK is a co-production between the UBC Graduate School of Journalism and HuffPost Canada. A team of international reporting fellows, in partnership with journalists in Turkey, spent eight months researching and reporting this complex issue, including field work throughout that country.
