ABSTRACT
An interview with Dr. Kelly Greenhill, an associate professor at Tufts University, is presented. When asked about her work on her work on forced migration, she cites several factors that drive forced migration. She discusses the role of opportunists in the migration patterns of refugees seen in Syria. She also argues that non-state actors act as generators of forced migration on the international stage.
