The United Nations and European leaders are discussing the refugee crisis from North Africa into Italy and Greece.  According to The New York Times, “So far this year more than 1,800 migrants may have drowned attempting the journey” from Libya to Europe via the Mediterranean Sea.  Reports estimate “78,000 people migrated this year,” and “civil war in Libya has made human trafficking easier.”  This article documents The Global Struggle to Respond to the Worst Refugee Crisis in Generations from the Middle East, the Ukraine, and southern Asia.
