    DescriptionThe mass displacement of people from the Middle East and Africa has dominated headlines for several months. The movement of migrants and refugees across Europe has delivered challenging stories from Mediterranean shores to the port of Calais. On this month's Big Idea, academics from the University of Edinburgh look one of the main causes of the crisis, the civil war in Syria. The podcast also looks at how the situation could change the politics of the European Union, and asks what can be done?
