Refugee Voices - ESRC Festival of Social Science

In today’s episode sponsored by the 2019 ESRC Festival of Social Science we’re fortunate to talk to two guests who have a key insight into reporting refugees. They are both refugees who are also journalists.

Abdulwahab Tahhan is originally from Syria where he worked as a journalist fixer. Since coming to the UK is a graduate of the Refugee Journalism Project and is now doing a PhD in media studies.

Zozan Yasar is a Kurdish journalist from Turkey who was granted asylum in the UK last year. Before coming here she worked for Voice of America and Kurdish media outlets.

Presented by: Dr. Glenda Cooper and Dr. Lindsey Blumell
