The New York Review of Books has two interesting articles on the exodus of Iraqis from Iraq.
From the Article:
“Following Iraq’s parliamentary election this March, much attention was devoted to the large turnout, the relatively orderly voting process (despite multiple attacks), the participation of Sunnis, and the apparent progress—after years of setbacks—toward a working political system in a still bitterly divided country. Widely forgotten in this analysis, however, are the two million Iraqis who remain in exile abroad. Most have ended up in the Middle East and Europe; a small number have been resettled in the United States and elsewhere”
Also, on the NY Review of Books Blog, there is a piece that details photojournalists’ efforts to capture the struggle that Iraqi refugees are facing during the resettlement process.
