"Currently I work with refugees in a small town (in Holland), but also want to stay involved on a bigger level to highlight the issues with borders and the current EU approach."

"After moving to the Netherlands, I started learning the Dutch language at the university, during a full time course that lasted several months. There I had the opportunity of meeting wonderful people from various corners of the world. Many of them have one thing in common: they are refugees. As we got to know each other better and we became friends, I got to learn more about their personal journeys, their struggles, joys and adjustment to their new life. With their collaboration I started a series of interviews about the refugees in the Netherlands. When I brought this idea forward to the other IWB members, it was met with a lot of enthusiasm. The ideas that followed led to this bigger project that I am now a part of."

"The rights of refugees need to be ensured and safeguarded at a European level; this project will emphasize this need and contribute to a fair and human treatment of refugees throughout Europe."
