The Syrian and other refugees streaming into Europe since 2015 have roiled its politics and tested its tolerance. But they’re just the latest of many waves of immigrants since World War II. Indians in Britain, Algerians in France, Somalis in Sweden are some of the immigrants who are reshaping the continent. Commissioned by National Geographic Magazine, Robin Hammond travelled through Europe to tell the stories of ‘The New Europeans.’
Continuing his work documenting mental health in African countries in crisis, Robin went to Liberia to investigate the ongoing psychological impact of war on the young men and women who fought as children in the country's civil wars. This work was made possible with the support of The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
Robin Hammond scooped his fifth Amnesty Award for his powerful Sunday Times magazine series on LGBTI stories of discrimination and survival from around the world, entitled ‘Where Love Is Illegal’ at the 2016 Amnesty International Media Awards last week
