Q&A sessions 

Join the discussion

In these especially difficult times when we are experiencing presentenced global discord, citizens are overwhelmed with too much information. These Q&A discussions will give us the opportunity to step back, pause and reflect on what is happening. With a panel of experts such as academics, reporters, or human rights defenders, we will all participate in monthly online live sessions, where you’ll have the chance to pose a question, make a comment, and offer your opinion in these important discussions.

We go live monthly.

Unaccompanied minors: Dis-continuum of protection
with the anthropologist Elina Sarantos, Project Coordinator at HIAS Greece.

We discuss the realities of unaccompanied children on the move and attempt to address the varying experiences of children migrating – both positive and negative.

What does life hold for the children who have been abandoned to the streets, completely excluded from any benefits, support, or representation of any kind? And, also, is independent child migration necessarily an exploitative or damaging experience for children? For this session, together with us will be a humanitarian worker with deep knowledge on the minors’ experiences in Greece, co-author of a significant report on the issue of exclusion and exploitation of unaccompanied minors.

Grief and mourning among refugees

Mourning is an inevitable experience that occurs following the loss of loved ones. Going through the bereavement process in a host society, refugees are faced with different challenges, very often without even being able to practice their funeral rites and rituals. Nikos Gkionakis, experienced psychologist and Head of Babel Day Center, offering mental health services to refugees in Athens, is our guest for this session.
