Sociology Students’ Refugee Awareness

Sociology students were honoured to have Carmel Parr from the British Red Cross deliver an interactive session on refugee awareness ahead of Refugee Week, which runs from the 18th to the 24th June.
The session challenged assumptions about migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, and aimed to develop more mutual respect, empathy and understanding. The students discovered that the majority of the world’s refuges are children and they were shown the journey of a young girl and her sister fleeing Syria; this gave the students an understanding of why someone might have to flee their home.
Students also analysed the harmful effects of unwelcoming, hostile or discriminating behaviour. They considered how individual actions can help someone feel more welcome, and how we can understand and celebrate our differences.
