A new era dawns for Myanmar as they elected Htin Kyaw as the country’s first non-military president, since the army took power in a 1962 coup.

I have become President because of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s goodwill and loving kindness”. 

The Right To Work: Empowering Refugees and Host States


The word ‘refugee’ conjures up images of desolate camps and tragic, impoverished conditions. As the refugee crisis becomes increasingly pressing, concern grows about how hundreds of thousands of refugees can be housed in specialist camps and how far humanitarian aid resources will stretch. Whilst such aid plays a vital role in the short-term, the provision of aid alone cannot solve the crisis and confining refugees and asylum-seekers to camps means that they are effectively quarantined, unable to integrate into wider society. Isolating refugees in this way is damaging to both the refugees concerned and the host state, creating a cycle of dependency. The only viable way to break this cycle is to empower refugees by strengthening and enforcing the rights they have, under international law, to work within host states.

And Europe’s humanitarian crisis


Europe is in a humanitarian crisis. We have never had so many people arrive in Europe fleeing war, repression and fear. Thousands of refugees continue to arrive at EU borders every day. More than 800’000 refugees and migrants have reached Europe so far with over 3’400 people including children having lost their lives making the journey.
