People will continue to migrate for many years, and it is very important for world leaders to review the old tradition of prevention and protection which was set under the United Nations Higher Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) that were built after World War II. Since then our world had changed a lot, but the approaches have remained the same in the interest of national security. If we do not set out to help refugees and migrants, we have sold our humanity and that is a very worrying phenomenon.

Jeremy Corbyn is hardly a household name in the United States, but his election win has pricked some ears on this side of the Atlantic. Few US reports about Corbyn's victory have focused on his domestic goals. His economic and social policies are almost never mentioned except when contextualizing the new leader as a 'socialist'.
