USA: Bringing communities together at a time of division: the work of Milenio in Portland, Oregon 

By Mariah Grant One of the most striking developments, since the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States in November 2016 and his assumption of office at the beginning of 2017, is the rapid mobilization of civic opposition to the policies of his administration. Virtually every major announcement since taking office – from the so-called ‘travel ban’ on citizens from a...

Myanmar: The continued persecution of Rohingya 

By Nicole Girard While right-wing populism and anti-migrant rhetoric are widely reported in Europe and North America, they are by no means confined to these regions.

By Mays Al-Juboori With more than 3 million Iraqis still internally displaced, the country’s protracted crisis – driven in large part by the 2014 offensive of ISIS through northern Iraq – is still a long way from being resolved, even with the apparent retreat of its forces from Mosul and other strongholds.
