The conflict in Syria has resulted in one of the largest refugee exoduses in recent history, displacing more than 12 million Syrians, 4 million of which have left the country entirely. In this episode, we examine the terminology used to describe the current crisis, Canada’s response to the situation, and avenues that might improve the protection of refugee rights in the future. We speak with Francois Crépeau, UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, and Paul Clarke, Director of Action Réfugiés Montréal.
