Migrants usually stuck ‘between rock and hard place”: IOM

18 December 2012

The plight of migrants who are stranded in crisis situations as a result of man-made or natural disasters is the focus of this year’s International Migrants Day.

The day is observed on 18 December each year to highlight issues that affect millions of migrants around the world.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) says that in crisis situations migrants often find themselves stuck between the rock and hard place.

UN Radio’s Patrick Maigua discusses the issue of migrants with IOM spokesperson in Geneva, Jean-Philippe Chauzy.
