Two dramatized pieces dealing with the rights and expectations of refugees:

Mustafa Y v. Secretary of State for the Home Department [2015]
Janina Moninska
In 2007 a Palestinian fleeing an UNRWA refugee camp in Lebanon, applied for Asylum in the UK. His appeal is still pending. This live art event created by Janina Moninska, will attempt to address the following questions:What is my responsibility towards those seeking refuge from conflict or resisting occupation in their homelands? What are our options for response as individuals, communities or citizens?

You, Me and the Distance Between Us
Ellen Muriel
A showcase of a new play under development. This one woman show uses music, storytelling and puppetry to address the expectations, experiences and insecurities of its performer in relation to the current ‘refugee crisis’: a white, middle class drama graduate who found herself volunteering in the midst of those making the journey across Europe.

This will be followed by a response from Professor Marie-Benedicte Dembour and Jo Wilding, specialists in human rights and asylum law at the University of Brighton, and a Q and A with the audience.

This event is part of MARS, Migrant and Refugee Solidarity month at the University of Brighton
