I love it when complex subjects are explained well using video and infographics. I thought the UK was already doing quite a bit for the Syrian refugees - now I'm not so sure.
This video, by 'In a Nutshell', explains how the Syrian crisis is an international issue, and how it all started with the unrest and the civil war in Syria. The video explains the role of the neighbouring countries in aiding and giving asylum to refugees in their greatest hour of need. They've done a great job of putting it into an intelligible format.
