The Catalyst team met with Delphine Polidori to discuss her upcoming article “The perception of displaced persons as biological” in the upcoming Spring 2021 edition of Chrysalis.
Thus far, the global response of most developed countries has been to funnel money into the international refugee support system, which provides humanitarian aid relief through the establishment of refugee camps. As these camps are short-term solutions, in most host countries, refugees lack the right to work or move freely. This might not have been a problem if the duration of their stay were short, however the conflicts from which refugees flee usually last indefinitely.
