NEW PODCAST LIVE NOW Reflecting on Stephen Hawking


On refugees

On refugees. The world is in the midst of a refugee crisis. Over six million refugees have escaped Syria alone since the conflict began there - but only around 11,500 have resettled in the UK. In this episode of Encounter we hear from Bayan about his own difficult journey from Syria to the UK. We ask how this crisis compares to those the world has seen before, and how someone copes when their host country has a different majority religion to their own.

Featuring Ed Kessler, Bayan Almasri, Julian Huppert and Esther-Miriam Wagner.
