This year’s event took in the migrant crisis, Russian authoritarianism, sulky sculptors – and even introduced us to a loveable pig. There was plenty to enjoy This year’s Cannes had its overriding theme imposed from without: terrorism. The festival was widely and solidly shocked by the news from Manchester, and the director Thierry Frémaux made an affecting speech from the Palais stage about the need to stand firm with that city and asked for a minute’s silence. Delegates were coming up to Brits all the time and expressing their sympathy. Cannes had had its own scare earlier in the week: a stray bag spotted in an empty auditorium. In went security staff with dogs, a reminder of how convulsed France has been by terrorist outrageparticularly up the coast, in Nice. But otherwise, the themes of Cannes revolved around the three Rs: refugees, Russia and the ruin of the middle class.

At one point you get buskers in the street and the blues band in a bar who seem to offer a kind of Greek chorus commentary. There's a lovely moment in a migrant reception centre where somebody starts playing a tune which takes a runaway to lost, distant lands. It's beautifully put together, visually crisp and clear in that kind of hyper real style. It's very, very difficult to get that balance.

commitment to it. The theme of the migrant was evident in other films at Chris Reid, such as in the background of Happy End, and the refugee also featured fantastically in Jupiter's Moon from a Hungarian film maker. It was the story of a refugee.

The U.N. Children’s Fund is urging G-7 leaders meeting in Taormina, Sicily to adopt an action plan to keep refugee and migrant children safe, following the deaths of at least 200 refugee and migrants children this year. UNICEF reports the refugees and migrants children, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, died along Mediterranean Sea routes from North Africa to Italy. Data from early 2017 shows a growing number of refugees and migrants are taking the perilous central Mediterranean route to reach Europe. According to UNICEF, more than 45,000 people, including some 5,500 unaccompanied and separated children, have arrived in Italy by sea. That is 44 percent higher than last year. Speaking by phone from Sicily, UNICEF Deputy Executive Director Justin Forsyth said far too many children - more than one a day - are literally dying trying to get to Italy.

In Finland, says the Minister of Education, “all the schools are equal. You never ask where the best school is.” It’s also illegal in Finland to profit from schooling. Wealthy parents have to ensure that neighborhood schools can give their kids the best education possible, because they are the only option. Many people in the U.S. object to comparisons like Moore’s by noting that societies like Finland are “homogenous” next to what seems to them like maddening diversity in the U.S. However, Finland has incorporated, though not without controversy, large immigrant and refugee populations —even as its schools continue to improve. The government has responded in part to the influx of a migrant population with educational initiatives such as this one , a “national initiative to reinforce Finnish higher education institutions (HEIs) as significant stakeholders in migrantsintegration.

Through the human stories of second and third-generation migrants, as well as incoming new refugees, this film paints a picture of how the experience of Arab immigrants in Germany has changed over the decades. We ask what it means to be a foreigner in Germany, and at the same time come to understand Germany itself and the reasoning behind its immigration policies. We also hear from German analysts and decision-makers about Germany's dependency on migrant communities to re-populate its dwindling towns and keep its economy strong. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

More than 1,300 people have died this year on the world's most dangerous crossing for migrants, after boarding flimsy boats to flee poverty and war across Africa and the Middle East. Last Friday, more than 150 disappeared at sea, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said Tuesday, citing testimony collected after survivors disembarked in Italy. In the past week, more than 7,000 migrants have been plucked from boats in international waters off the western coast of Libya, where people smugglers operate with impunity. Despite efforts by Italy and the European Union to train and equip the U.N.-backed government in Tripoli and its coast guard to fight traffickers, migrants are arriving in record numbers. Disputes are also brewing between the Libyan Coast Guard and aid groups. MSF and SOS Mediteranee said officials from the Tripoli-based force had boarded a migrant boat during a rescue Tuesday, robbing the migrants and firing shots into the air.
