By bringing together disparate individuals, The Refugee Journalism Project aims to create a network that reaps the benefits of collaborative working. Whether it’s a UK journalism student filming with a Syrian translator; an Afghan film-maker reporting on location in Calais with an Irish journalist; or an Eritrean producer working within a global media organisation, these unions create a reciprocal flow of understanding and learning, ultimately helping to aid integration.
The following films were produced in September 2016 by Journalism undergraduate James Cropper, Syrian journalist, translator and campaigner, Fardous Barbouh, and Afghan radio presenter Aziz Rahman.
