Meet the Journalist: Alice Su

Jordan and Lebanon are overwhelmed with millions of refugees, conflict across every border, and need for water, electricity and jobs. Similar problems consume the region: UN agencies beg for funding, regimes cry “Security!” as they choke domestic freedoms, youth turn a cynical eye to their 2011 ideals, and the international community wrings its hands, unable to protect the most marginalized populations.

As months become years and new asylum seekers arrive, journalist Alice Su looks at how refugee businessmen, lawyers, mothers, students and artists forge a way forward in her project "Interim Lives: Refugee Survival in Jordan and Lebanon."
