700 Days Away from Home

Sharing from a Displaced Syrian

The Syrian Crisis shook up the world one again when the image of a drowned Syrian boy washed up on beach in Turkey went viral with #KiyiyaVuranInsanlik (humanity washed ashore) in September 2015. To help students get better informed about the debates triggered by the Crisis, including the UK's immigration policy and the EU's asylum system, we have organised a guest seminar delivered by a displaced Syrian whose family has sought refuge in Germany since 2014. Our guest shared with us the background of the current conflict and her invaluable testimony to the drastic changes in her country since the conflict broke out in 2011.
