I’m bringing you this special episode of The Worldwide Tribe in response to what has been happening in recent weeks in Israel and Palestine.

Today’s Episode of the podcast brings you the stories of two incredible young women, Nujeen Mustafa and Marwa Mbayed.

This week I’m talking to Karina and Katie from an organisation called United Stateless - the only organisation in the United States of America to be advocating for stateless people. This is another topic that I had no idea about before Karina and Katie opened my eyes to what it means to be stateless. Turns out there are around 200,000 people in Ame…
 
This week’s episode of the Worldwide Tribe podcast is about something we all need to know about... The Kafala System. Kafala means sponsorship. It’s a system common across many Arab countries, where a citizen of that country can ‘sponsor’ someone from a poorer country to come and work for them. There are around 400,000 migrant domestic workers in L…
 
You might remember that at the end of last summer, UK artist Banksy hit the news when he funded a new search and rescue boat in the Mediterranean. He painted it bright pink, with a girl in a life vest holding a heart-shaped safety buoy painted on the side, and it was named the Louise Michel after a French feminist anarchist. The Louise Michel has s…
 
In every episode of the Rethinking Humanitarianism podcast, we ask our guests what they would do if they had millions of dollars – or perhaps a magic wand – to transform the way the world responds to people in need. We’ve heard a panoply of pitches: from politicians sleeping in refugee camps to a global fund for social protection, from networked hu…
 
Do you think of refugee camps as only existing in countries far away? Today’s episode of The Worldwide Tribe podcast is about one right here in the UK: Napier Barracks. Up on a hill in the seaside town of Folkestone in Kent, lies a disused army barracks built in 1794. It’s red-brick buildings, surrounded by 10-ft fences topped with barbed wire, wer…
 
COVID-19 dominated headlines in 2020. The pandemic shocked the world, exacerbating existing crises, overshadowing new ones, and creating all kinds of knock-on health, economic and social effects. Against the backdrop of 2020, what can we expect in the year ahead? What will be the continued fallout from COVID-19? What other crises and trends are on …
 
So in this episode of Rethinking Humanitarianism, host Heba Aly sits down with donors to talk about humanitarian reform priorities from their vantage point – and how funding policies can be part of the problem.

What is the role of a $25 billion humanitarian aid industry in a trillion dollar problem? The size of the challenge is well beyond the humanitarian system. So what kind of rethink is necessary for the way aid agencies work in the face of this impending threat? To answer that question, TNH Director Heba Aly is joined by Paul Knox Clarke, the former …
 
The police killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and several other Black Americans forced many around the world to look introspectively and critically at systemic power imbalances. The aid sector was no exception, with growing calls for it to be decolonised. But movements often falter when it comes time for policy change. Now comes the hard part…
 
As we close out a year in which the UN marked its 75th anniversary, we’re taking a hard look at whether reform of multilateral agencies has a chance. Two guests with extensive backgrounds in diplomacy and international service are joining co-hosts Heba Aly and Jeremy Konyndyk on this sixth episode of Rethinking Humanitarianism, the podcast series e…
 
So many of the day-to-day realities of the humanitarian sector are driven by money: who gets it, how it's distributed, and what it's intended for. Who benefits from the current models of financing aid? Can alternatives – from local pooled funds to private sector infrastructure – provide better value for money and better outcomes for people affected…
 
Refugees from Ethiopia are currently fleeing across the border into Sudan. If this crisis plays out like many do, big aid agencies will soon begin setting up shop, organising camps, handing out food and water, and leading an organised response to those refugees. But what if things were done differently? In this episode, Jeremy and Heba talk to thre…
 
After a few torturous days of suspense, Joe Biden was declared the winner of the US presidential elections. In his victory speech, Biden said he seeks “to make America respected around the world again”. But how will the Biden administration show up in the world? Is this an opportunity to reimagine US foreign policy and its humanitarian implications…
 
If aid were a superhero, what would its origin story sound like? Which problems was it initially set up to solve and how are they different from the problems today? The answers to these questions should help us understand why efforts at reform have fallen short in the past.
 
In this episode, we ask whether COVID-19 is a wake-up call to rethink humanitarianism.

For our first guest this series, we are pleased to pick the…

The whole world was shocked by the footage of last week’s explosion in Beirut. It hardly looked real.

Giles describes himself as an anti-war photographer, doc…

The globalisation of vulnerability – made clear by the coronavirus pandemic and a global anti-racism movement – is putting into question traditional conceptions of humanitarian aid too. As suffering and violations of rights in the West become more visible, it’s hard to argue that “we” are helping “them”. And many of those communities in need are lo…
 
Kicking off the season today I’m joined by a guest who’s name might be familiar to you.

Rob’s actions saw him facing …
 
This episode is another absolute treat. This week’s guest is ‘Hairdresser to the Homeless,’ Joshua Coombes.

You lot told me what you wanted to hear next on the podcast, so here it is... COVID-19 in a refugee camp. And I thought we might as well start with the bigge…
 
Sarah Mardini has been on my radar for years. Her and her sister Yusra, who we heard from in the last episode, became known for swimming their boat to safety from Turkey to Greece after fleeing Syria. A year later, they were in Rio for the 2016 Olympics, where Yusra represented the refugee swimming team which was heavily documented by international…
 
In today’s episode I talk to Yusra Mardini. We recorded this conversation in her flat in Hamburg, just before the world went into lockdown due to the Covid_19 pandemic.

After 39 people were found dead inside a refrigerated lorry in Essex two weeks ago on the 23rd October, I was left with a lot of questions. Why are people leaving Vietnam? Why haven’t I met any Vietnamese people in refugee camps in Europe? The only Vietnamese people I see work in nail bars...is this forced labour? Today’s mind-blowing conversation …
 
Today we share the story of how The Worldwide Tribe began. I’m joined by my brother Nils who has been there with me every step of the way.

This week my guest is real-life-superhero Brendan Woodhouse, a firefighter and father of two from Nottingham. We talk about his journey from normal life in the UK, to saving lives in the Mediterranean Sea. It all started when he saw a Facebook post I wrote about the Calais Jungle Refugee Camp back in 2015, which prompted him to start collecting don…
 
I met Awad in the Jungle refugee camp in Calais, northern France, in 2015 and he was pretty unforgettable from the off. A Sudanese refugee himself, he helped volunteers with things like distribution, becoming an informal leader within the Sudanese community in the camp. Whilst living in circumstances hardly fit for an animal, he was always positive…
