For over a decade, human rights journalist Agus Morales has journeyed to the sites of the world’s most brutal conflicts and spoken to the victims of violence and displacement. To Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the Central African Republic. To Central America, the Congo, and the refugee camps of Jordan. To the Tibetan Parliament in exile in northern India.
We are living in a time of massive global change, when negative images of refugees undermine the truth of their humiliation and suffering. By bringing us stories that reveal the individual pain and the global scope of the crisis, Morales reminds us of the truth and appeals to our conscience.
Agus Morales is a journalist who has spent the last decade writing about victims of war and the displaced. He is in love with the Indian subcontinent, where he spent over five years as a correspondent for the Spanish news agency Agencia EFE in both India and Pakistan. He then spent three years with Doctors Without Borders, following population movements in Africa and the Middle East. He is now an independent reporter whose work has appeared in the New York Times en Español, among other places. He is a founder and director of the international journal Revista 5W, and he holds a PhD in language and literature. Agus lives in Barcelona, Spain.
