Dr. Maissaa Almustafa Presents on Refugee Journey Narratives
December 20, 2019
A moving and insightful seminar took place at the Dahdaleh Institute on November 27, 2019, as Dr. Maissaa Almustafa shared journey narratives of refugees from Syria living in Sweden. Dr. Almustafa is the Dahdaleh Institute Fellow in Global Health & Wellness of Refugees & Migrants.
Refugee Journeys from Syria to Sweden: Agency, Precarity, and Wellbeing brought to light the diverse backgrounds and aspirations of these individuals, humanizing people who are often regarded as statistics. Dr. Almustafa makes an important claim through this work: refugees themselves must be regarded as the primary source of knowledge on the global crisis of protection facing refugees.
