Episode 1: Home

Show notes

Home has a different meaning for everyone and we will talk to Fatima, Gabriel and Jameela about their home or homes and their stories of vulnerability in connection with feeling or not feeling at home, missing home or making a strange place their home.

This podcast is a part of the VULNER project, a research project that aims to understand the vulnerabilities faced by migrants, to enable decision-makers to better identify positions of vulnerabilities and address them.

In this podcast we try to focus on the individual experiences and feelings, that constitute the „vulnerabilities“ of refugees and that are often overlooked and not so clear.

We talked to three people from three different countries: You will meet Jameela, who is a refugee from Afghanistan and currently in an accommodation centre in Belgium. Gabriel, who has a refugee history himself and is now working with refugees in Uganda. And we talked to Fatima, a humanitarian worker in the MENA region with Basmeh and Zeitooneh – one of the areas of concentration is Lebanon.

And we focus on six different topics - each topic will be part of an episode. Starting with home, we will explore more facets of vulnerability in the upcoming episodes, like family, food, gender or health. We will do this together with Fatima, Gabriel and Jameela. We hope you’ll be with us again.

This project has received funding from the European Union‘s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870845.
