A Guide to Welcoming Immigrants and Refugees | Eman Eltigani | TEDxPittsburgh

vor 2 Jahren

As the world faces a refugee crisis, big questions are being asked regarding how societies can absorb displaced populations. And from the point of view of displaced persons living in a new place, a trio of options exist: assimilate, accommodate, or isolate. Eman Eltigani's idea details why accommodation, from all parties, is the best way forward.

Eman Eltigani is qualitative research and development communication professional who has worked with UNICEF, UN Habitat, BBC Media Action, the International Bar Association, and the British Foreign Office. In her work with diverse clients, Eman has promoted on-the-ground dialogue with diverse groups of people living through multiple challenges, including Internally Displaced People (IDPs), refugees, human right activists, and vulnerable groups. Eman uses media to advocate for the education of vulnerable women and children discussing sensitive issues such as Female Genital Mutilation and Cutting (FGM/C), Early Marriage, and human rights.
