MORE THAN 60 MILLION PEOPLE in the world today have been displaced by war and poverty. But much of the mainstream reporting on the refugee crisis has avoided mentioning how imperialist wars and disastrous neoliberal economic polices have driven the crisis.
In this new episode of The Empire Files, Abby Martin looks at the refugee crisis and asks who is really to blame?
She talks with Atossa Abrahamian, journalist and author of the new book The Cosmopolites: The Coming of the Global Citizen and with Professor Saskia Sassen, sociologist and expert on human migration, currently serving as co-chair of the Committee on Global Thought at Columbia University. Her latest book on the subject, Expulsions, has just been published.
