[Comment] Offline: Migration and health—from aspiration to desperation

There are few political issues as potent today as migration. Trump and his wall. Brexit. The Front National and Marine Le Pen. Alternative für Deutschland. Public norms have shifted to allow racism and xenophobia to be permitted, even embraced, in political debate. Perhaps the world is waking up to this threat at last. It can be no coincidence that the next Secretary-General of the United Nations will be Antonio Guterres, who, for 10 years as UN High Commissioner for Refugees, succeeded in making migration a central issue in world affairs.
