When shit happens
8 February 2016 (IRIN ), Everyone defecates, but ‘how’ and ‘where’ are questions that highlight class, gender and cultural differences between us.

Turkey’s refugee smugglers adapt and prosper
8 February 2016 (IRIN ), Turkish and German leaders may be ramping up the rhetoric and hardening their resolve to crack down on the people smugglers pushing a steady stream of Syrians and others out into the Aegean, but the illicit trade is still booming and the criminal networks are finding new ways to avoid detection.

Zika: Are mosquitoes the cure as well as the curse?
5 February 2016 (IRIN ), As the Zika virus continues its relentless spread through Latin America and beyond, causing anguish for would-be parents and leaving a trail of children with severe and lifelong developmental problems, the search to find a way of stopping the pandemic in its tracks could not be more urgent. But an effective vaccine will likely take years to develop and current methods for eliminating the Aedes aegypti mosquito that carries the virus are only partially effective.

Turkey's hidden humanitarian crisis
3 February 2016 (IRIN ), Kurdish human rights organisations say fighting across southeastern Turkey has displaced 200,000 people in the last two months alone. Turkish authorities put the number at 93,000. Either way, it’s a mass displacement. There are no camps, little aid, and almost no international awareness of what’s actually going on.

Where in the world is Zika?
3 February 2016 (IRIN ), The World Health Organization has declared that the strong links between Zika infection during pregnancy and microcephaly should be treated as a global public health emergency. IRIN maps the range of the Aedes aegypti mosquito and the Zika virus it spreads.

Somalia offers Yemenis a safer home
2 February 2016 (IRIN ), Somalia is the new home for 30,560 people who have fled the fighting in Yemen and are trying to adjust to life in a country that – while no longer written off as a “failed state” – certainly has its challenges.

Stop scapegoating Greece
2 February 2016 (IRIN ), As the Greek islands continue to receive around 2,000 migrants and refugees every day, despite treacherous winter sea conditions, many other European countries are trying to prevent their onward movement. Greece is increasingly isolated and under pressure.

Zika virus takes hold in Colombia
1 February 2016 (IRIN ), Since being infected with the Zika virus a month ago, Wendy Johana Castillo has been experiencing pain all over her body, a recurring fever and a skin rash. But the 23-year-old Colombian is more concerned about her unborn baby.

EU laws designed to deter refugees
27 January 2016 (IRIN ), A new Danish law that will allow police to search asylum seekers arriving in the country and confiscate any cash or valuables worth more than 10,000 kroner ($1,460) has been widely condemned by refugee and human rights groups. But it is only the latest among a raft of new laws introduced by EU member states in the past six months aimed at deterring asylum seekers from lodging claims on their territory.

Refugees Unwelcome: border closures and freezing temperatures
25 January 2016 (IRIN ), Refugees and migrants attempting to pass through the tiny village of Idomeni near Greece’s border with Macedonia are paying the price for the introduction of ever more restrictive border policies by countries further north. Over the weekend, thousands were forced to sleep outside in temperatures that dipped to -8 degrees Celsius as Macedonia admitted only small numbers of refugees for a few hours a day.

Is Greece right to rein in refugee volunteerism?
19 January 2016 (IRIN ), Last week, five young European volunteers were arrested on the Greek island of Lesvos and later charged with people smuggling. Is this part of an overly officious crackdown on groups that are just trying to help, or a timely effort to rein in an amateur rescue effort that amounts to a dangerous free-for-all?

Failed EU relocation plan leaves refugees in limbo
18 January 2016 (IRIN ), The EU's September agreement to relocate 160,000 asylum seekers from the frontline states of Greece and Italy to other EU states over two years has so far been a dismal failure. Only 272 asylum seekers have been relocated in the past four months and dozens more are spending weeks or even months in Athens hotel rooms awaiting relocation.

UN aid panel calls for ‘grand bargain’ on finance
18 January 2016 (IRIN ), After seven months of research and deliberation, the UN secretary-general’s high-level panel has finally delivered its proposals for reforming humanitarian financing. The ideas are not startlingly new, but, four months ahead of the World Humanitarian Summit, is this now a framework that might actually be adopted and help close the gap between soaring needs and dwindling resources?

Syrian refugees in Cologne fear backlash
15 January 2016 (IRIN ), Syrian refugees living in Cologne say they’re afraid they’ll have to pay the price for the actions of gangs of men, said to be of Arab and North African origin, who assaulted and robbed women in the city on New Year’s Eve. Twenty-two asylum seekers are reported to be among the suspects that German police have identified so far.
