On Today's Show:

  • In Europe, migrant flows are at record lows, but the governments of several countries are implementing strict new policies to make migration harder. To discuss these attitudes, we’re joined by Demetrios Papademetriou, a senior fellow and president emeritus of the Migration Policy Institute.
  • Since 1978, the nonprofit group Mercy Ships has operated several ships that visit coastal areas of some of the most impoverished countries in the world. The current hospital director for Mercy Ships’ flagship ‘Africa Mercy,' Nate Claus joins Worldview to discuss his work.
  • In 2009, American actress Kim Schultz traveled to the Middle East to work with refugees. She ended up falling in love with one of them and began a three year intercontinental romance just as civil war was breaking out in Syria. She tells her story and the stories of the other refugees she met in her book Three Days in Damascus. She joins us to talk about the refugee crisis and finding love in war.
