STAR meeting 13/02/13 February 17, 2013

Posted by starglasgow in Uncategorized.

At this weeks STAR meeting we were joined by Greg Philo – Sociology professor at the University of Glasgow and the Research Director of the Glasgow Media Group.  Greg Philo gave us a talk based on his research for his new, as yet unreleased book “Bad News for Refugees”.  In his talk he discussed how the media influences policy-making which in turn has tremendous and terrible effects on the lives of refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.

At next weeks meeting we will be joined by a representative from the Glasgow Friends of Tibet group who will be giving us a talk on the difficulties of life in Tibet and why refugees and asylum seekers find it hard to escape.
