Malaysia: Refugees from Burma at Risk

Refugees fleeing Burma's authoritarian government frequently end up in Malaysia. The promised haven is often anything but, with refugees prey to human traffickers, physical abuse and rape. This project tells their story.

Blood Trade: Memphis and the Mexican Drug War

A hardened criminal from the streets of Memphis. One of the biggest drug cartels in Mexico. The corruption, cash, and demand for drugs that fuels an illegal, deadly trade -- and the consequences, for Mexicans and Americans alike.

Migration, Xenophobic Violence, and the Ghosts of Apartheid

Those attending the 2010 World Cup in South Africa reveled in that country's triumphant emergence as a multiracial democracy. They may have missed a darker story -- the abuse and marginalization of refugees from other African countries.

Nepal: Rebels with a Reason

Nepal is in the midst of historic change, from the abolition of a centuries-old monarchy to the re-integration of Maoist revolutionaries after a decade-long insurgency. The road ahead is not likely to be clear, or easy.

Nigeria - The Edge of Joy

As Nigeria works to “re-brand” itself from a post-colonial military state to a progressive African democracy, political, civic and professional leaders have recognized the most intractable problem for this emerging society is also its most treatable: maternal and infant mortality.

India Casts a Light on Mothers Long in the Dark

In India the incidence of women dying while giving birth is among the highest in the world. How poverty, early marriage and poor infrastructure make childbirth fraught with risk.

Ethiopia: Hunger and Abundance

A country dependent on food aid is also selling off farmland to foreign companies interested in export production for their home markets. How Ethiopia became a leader in this global trend, and what it says about exploitation and self-sufficiency.

Kyrgyzstan: Revolution, Take Two

In early April, a violent uprising forced Kyrgyzstan’s beleaguered president to flee the capital, and an interim government pronounced itself in charge. Kyrgyzstan had seen it all before.

Child Sacrifice in Uganda

Searing images capture a disturbing Ugandan trend -- the recent rise of charlatan priests and the child abuse and sometimes murder that have resulted. (This project contains graphic images that may not be suitable for all audiences.)

The Struggle for Health in Chiapas

An infant born in the state of Chiapas as three times as likely to die as the rate for Mexico as a whole. The maternal mortality rate in neighboring Oaxaca is twice the national average. This project explains why, and what is being done in response.
