There have never been more people seeking safety and so few places around the world willing to welcome and protect them. 80 million people - the most in history - have fled persecution and conflict, usually with just the clothes on their back. Crossing Borders takes you inside the experience of being a refugee and introduces you to some of the people who are helping rebuild their lives.

The bucolic Greek island of Lesvos, located just a few miles off the coast of Turkey, has in recent years become one of the epicenters of the global refugee crisis. Since 2014, more than 1 million refugees have sought safety in Greece; today, tens of thousands remain stranded in refugee camps amid the olive groves of Lesvos. In this episode of Crossing Borders, we’ll hear from a few of those refugees as well as the dedicated lawyers who are trying to help them navigate Europe’s complex legal system.
