Europe Slams its Gates

Europe’s migration crisis isn’t over — it’s just beginning. With net immigration expected to exceed 1 million per year for the next five decades and xenophobia surging, European leaders are grasping for new ways to slow the influx. So far, their efforts have included tighter rules and enforcement at home, as well as multibillion-dollar development projects and support for local militaries and governments in Africa.

This investigation was first published in Foreign Policy and received the 2018 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award in the New Media category.

Featured Story

Wind, Sand & Stars by Linda Bournane Engelberth

I am a Norwegian/Algerian artist raised in Norway by my Norwegian mother, never knowing my Algerian father and his family. I have always been curious about my other country of origin. As a teenager, I finally made contact with my father, and more recently, my wider family in Algeria. When my Berber grandmother turned 100, she wrote me a letter so that I wouldn’t forget about my father’s homeland. This project is an attempt to research my own identity as a Western woman investigating this foreignness that makes up half of my bloodline.

Every Child ALIVE Exhibition

Ilvy Njiokiktjien attended the opening of UNICEF’s Every Child ALIVE exhibition at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. The exhibition showcases 16 newborn portraits taken by Ilvy on assignment for UNICEF, along with the amazing stories of these babies who have overcome newborn mortality in Mali, Mongolia, Peru, and Bangladesh.

Ilvy Njiokiktjien attends Every Child Alive Exhibition

The exhibition, on view through June 6, aims to highlight stories of how practical solutions can make a lifesaving difference and bring us closer to ending preventable newborn mortality. Each story includes a hand-shot portrait taken in a mobile studio (inspired by a newborn photography style popular in high-income countries), and a wider “contextual” portrait showing the mother, the baby, and the solutions that helped the baby survive.
