AYS Daily News 25/10: A lost generation: Syrian refugee children forced into sweatshops in Turkey

From refugees to child labourers: The fate of children in conflict zones. What about children’s education? They are future adults who need skills, knowledge and a sense of belonging to a community! Calais eviction: Day 2. Refugees, but also internally displaced: What happens when one cannot leave Syria? An increase in arrivals to Greece, a record number of arrivals to Italy. Let’s not be Gorino, let’s be Napoli! UN report: No evidence migration causes terror attacks, but anti-migration laws do, indeed.
