Over 13 million people have been forcibly displaced by the crisis in Syria since 2012, and over 4 million people need humanitarian assistance in Iraq because of the ISIS/ ISIL military activity since 2014. These combine to form the largest forcibly displaced population in the world since the Second World War. Ten years into these crises, there is no clear direction toward return. In this talk, former Holy Cross Chaplain Rev. Dan Corrou, S.J., Regional Director of the Jesuit Refugee Service in the Middle East (Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria), will describe humanitarian responses to the crises and the JRS mission of accompaniment—a model for the work of reconciliation based in the 500-year Ignatian tradition of cura personalis.
