World Refugee Day - Test Of Our Humanity

Reports of Rohingyas arriving in boats and being turned away from Malaysian shores have put the country in the international spotlight. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) have strongly condemned the move to turn the refugees away, but what exactly is the role of the UN in helping to resolve the crisis? In conjunction with World Refugee Day, we sit down with Richard Towle, UNHCR's Malaysian Representative, for an in-depth look at the complexities of the refugee crisis in the region.
