In this update:
- The refugee crisis and corruption
Over a million migrants and refugees fleeing war, poverty and violence in the Middle East, Asia and Africa crossed into Europe by land, air and sea in 2015, setting off the largest refugee crisis in Europe since WWII. Even higher numbers have poured into neighbouring countries, such as Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey in the case of people fleeing Iraq and Syria. As the international community debates how to tackle the crisis, little attention has been given to one of the chief drivers of instability and facilitators of mass migration: corruption.
