Kurds in the Eye of the Storm

The Kurdish people -- divided among Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran -- have found themselves on the frontlines 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 pioneering social experiments and some surprising alliances.

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 and past president at the San Jose Peace and Justice Center, and on the Board of Advisors of the Initiative for Equality (IfE).
