“Discussing “The Game” – Migrants and Refugees Face Peril in Bosnia-Herzegovina” Recorded June 24, 2021
Join journalist Ziyah Gafic for a conversation centered around the challenges migrants and refugees face in Bosnia-Herzegovina during the pandemic in his Pulitzer Center-supported photojournalism project, The Game. Gafic’s reporting for National Geographic examines how COVID-19 has made the already treacherous journey most migrants and refugees face even more difficult. Migrants face extremely limited access to health care and housing as well as mounting tensions with local populations. Gafic will discuss how the pandemic has amplified these conflicts for dislocated communities. The 2021 Summer Institute for Educators is co-sponsored by the University of Chicago Center for East Asian Studies, Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies, and Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and it is presented in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. It is made possible through generous support from the Title VI National Resource Center grants from the US Department of Education.
