#2 The Jungle

During the summer of 2015 thousands of refugees found themselves trapped in the jungle, an unofficial camp in Calais, France. Two English lawyers travelled to the jungle and were shocked to discover unaccompanied children living in unsafe, squalid conditions. In the second episode of It Can Be Done: A Syrian businessman discovers the harsh reality of life in the jungle, a British community organiser visits Calais and tries to help, and lawyers look to European Union asylum law for a solution.
