Debates over language: a dangerous distraction?
31 August 2015 (IRIN ), Migrants? Refugees? Or just "people" fleeing horror and hardship? All this attention on what terms we use for the thousands risking their lives to reach Europe is missing the point, argues Melissa Phillips, who says our energies would be better spent on a more coordinated response and a better understanding of why so many people are on the move.

When to use the M-word
27 August 2015 (IRIN ), Using the right terms when referring to Europe’s migration crisis has become a minefield for journalists. Al Jazeera’s recent decision to stop using the word ‘migrant’ entirely in reference to people crossing the Mediterranean is one reflection of the evolving debate, but there are still plenty of major media brands getting it wrong.

26 August 2015 (IRIN ), The use of biometrics clearly has a role to play in humanitarianism.

Serbia offers brief welcome for migrants rushing to EU
21 August 2015 (IRIN ), Hundreds of migrants and refugees camp out at a park in Belgrade every day, waiting for buses or taxis to take them north to Serbia’s border with Hungary.
