Dear readers and listeners,

We are thrilled to bring you the 16th episode of The Bulletin Podcast!

Every last Thurday of the month you'll find a new conversation on a fresh and trending topic.

Follow us and don't miss the next ones!

Venezuela has been rocked by some of the worst crises in its history in recent years. These crises have sparked one of the largest migration crises of the 21st century. However, unlike other migrations, there is no one single event that the migration can be attributed to, making it a complex migration crisis to fully comprehend

What are the roots of this crisis and what is happening to the Venezuelans that are migrating? We are glad to have Dr. Pau Palop-Garcia, a Research Fellow at the Willy Brandt School and Eva Serrano with us.

Dr. Pau Palop-Garcia holds a PhD in Political Sciences from the Free University of Berlin (2019). He specializes in the study of migration policies and the political representation of migrant communities. He has published widely about these topics in journals such as Democratization, Citizenship Studies, Comparative Migration Studies, Citizenship Studies, and the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies.

Eva Serrano recently completed her Master's at the Willy Brandt School, writing her thesis on the Colombian response to the Venezuelan crisis. She is currently beginning her career advocating for migrants and working to help migrants integrate into German life.
