WHAT IS REFUGEESIN?

RefugeesIN - Cinema for Refugees Social Inclusion is an European project devised by partner organisations from Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Ireland, Greece, coordinated by AidLearn, Portugal.

Now that we are living through a humanitarian calamity of historic proportions with individuals facing complex and painful processes in their adaptive pathways to European societies, we believe films can and should more often convey successful stories of refugees’ social inclusion in their newly adopted homeland. But is it really so?

Have the negative social beliefs surrounding refugees been replaced by those of social inclusion more in tune with developments in multicultural societies? Are the achievements of former wellincluded refugees into EU societies, where they live today, sufficiently or prominently displayed enough, highlighting a central modelling role, that newcomers’ can aspire to?
