Women Asylum Seekers Together
Dr Jenna Murray De Lopez and Dr Rubina Jasani from the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) have been working with Women Asylum Seekers Together (WAST) since May 2017 to conduct PEER (Participatory Ethnographic Evaluation Research) into the impact that WAST has on the lives of the women involved in the group’s work. WAST is an organization established and led by a group of women rejected from the asylum system. They aim to offer sanctuary to others refused asylum. They share their knowledge, experience and document the undocumented. The video highlights how this invisible and transient population organise, campaign and support each other to fill some of the emptiness that each woman feels in her heart. If you would like to know more about this PEER collaboration project please contact Jenna on firstname.lastname@example.org.

HCRI Landmark Lecture with Professor Lilie Chouliaraki (LSE): Mediating the Refugee Crisis
On Monday 03 October 2016, the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) held their annual Landmark Lecture, which provides a platform for discussion on topics relating to humanitarianism and disaster management. This year's Landmark Lecture was delivered by Professor Lilie Chouliaraki, a Professor of Media and Communication at the London School of Economics and Political Science. She has written extensively on media ethics (particularly the problem of mediated suffering), digital journalism and human rights/humanitarian communication. The lecture focused on the dominant visual culture around the recent 'refugees crisis' in Europe. Drawing on a typology of relevant images across media, map out the field of visibility within which refugees become perceptible to European publics and examine the distinct forms of responsibility, which the refugees are associated with (monitorial, affective, activist, post-humanitarian). In conclusion, it raised questions about the capacity of these forms of responsibility to engage with refugees as human others and to promote a culture of care and solidarity, outlining alternative media practices that could possibly foster different visual cultures.
