The collapse of Iraq has created a massive refugee crisis, dwarfing anything the Middle East has seen since the establishment of Israel in 1948.

The United Nations estimates that there are 1.2 million Iraqi refugees in Syria, 750,000 in Jordan and thousands more in Egypt, Iran, Lebanon and Turkey.

In Wednesday's show in Jordan, Riz speaks to two experts on the effects of the Iraq war on Jordan, particularly now that 20 per cent of Jordan's population is Iraqi.

Dana Graber is the Iraq displacement specialist within the International Organisation for Migration in Amman, while MP Mohammad Arsalan is in the Finance and Economic Committee in the Jordanian Parliament.
