Episode 4 - The many sides of migration
For the last few years, Greece has been in the frontline of the migration challenge - at least as far as Europe is concerned.
Having a country with such limited financial and administrative resources in such a prominent role has generated a wide range of problems.
There have been times when Greece was lauded for its efforts and others when it was admonished for failing to deliver.
In the latest episode of The Agora podcast, host Nick Malkoutzis and MacroPolis features writer Georgia Nakou take a look at the latest developments, including a contentious decision to remove several thousand refugees from their current accommodation in Greece.
Also, our producer Phoebe Fronista visits a shelter for unaccompanied minors in Athens to find out what life is like there and to hear the thoughts of the people running the facility.
Nick also speaks to Daniel Howden, the managing director of Lighthouse Reports, which helps newsrooms investigate migration-related issues, about the myriad challenges and the way our societies and authorities approach the issue.
In this podcast series, we're keeping alive the spirt of our long-running blog section, The Agora, which has been a forum for discussing all kinds of issues over a number of years.
We’ll examine political, economic and social developments in Greece. But our podcasts will also look at what’s happening in the world around us.
We’ll provide you with insight from our own experts and analysis from special guests.
So, if you enjoy intelligent, lively discussion and want the bigger picture, join us for a stroll through the Agora.
