The Kurdish people -- divided among Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran -- have found themselves on the front lines of the fight against ISIS in the aftermath of still more intense wars that had raged around them in all four countries for decades. While being battered by the storm, emerging out of its eye are some interesting fissures and pioneering social experiments.

Sharat G. Lin, who has visited all of these countries, is a political economist, expert on labor migration, and the Middle East. He is a research fellow at the San José Peace and Justice Center.
