All refugee settings have layers of tragedy and no solution is perfect - Syria is the most complex humanitarian situation in recent memory. What can/should we do? Why do nation-states respond with camps? Whose interests are served? What are the long-term solutions? How do the media represent refugees and refugee camps?
