NEWMARK (CUNY) J-SCHOOL REPORTING:
“It’s a Kind of Killing:” Afghan Refugees in Shadow of the EU Fear They’re Forgotten
Dec. 2017 // Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY // Part of international reporting capstone
Hungary’s southern border with Serbia was one of the frontlines of the European migration crisis at its height in 2015. Images of refugees trying to squeeze through a razor wire fence struck at the core values of the European Union, like respect for human rights.
The Western Balkans land route is now effectively closed but thousands of migrants are still stranded in the region. Kyle Mackie visited a center housing migrants in southwest Serbia, where she found mounting frustration among Afghans who say they’re left in limbo while the EU gives preference to Syrians and Iraqis.
