This week on War News Radio, in the third of our series looking at the big unresolved questions in Iraq, we focus in depth on the Iraqi refugee crisis. We explore the problems facing the displaced and the countries that accommodate them.

First, we hear about Iraqi refugees in Philadelphia. Listen now to this report from Haley Loram and Emily Hager.

One city in Sweden has taken in more Iraqis than the United States and Canada together. Listen now to Calvin Ho’s report.

Most refugees who leave Iraq find their way into neighboring countries, particularly Syria and Jordan. Several refugees tell us about the difficulties they experience living abroad. Listen now to this report from Jess Engebretson and Madeleine Abromowitz.

And, people who find themselves displaced within Iraq are struggling to call new neighborhoods home. Listen now to Elizabeth Threlkeld’s report.

Finally, we evaluate the future and what needs to be done for Iraqi refugees. Listen now to Wren Elhai’s report.
