STAR meeting 16/10/13 October 18, 2013

This week we were lucky to invite Morag Gillespie from Glasgow Caledonian University to speak about the research she conduct in association with the Stop Destitution Campaign.  Morag talked about how she had been asked to conduct this research as, at the point in time, she hadn’t been involved with asylum rights campaigning and how  even though she thought she had an understanding of the problems faced by asylum seekers she was shocked and horrified by both the scale and severity of the problem in her own city.  Read her research here – Trapped: Destitution and Asylum in Scotland

We then had a really great discussion on Morag’s research and the problem of destitution.  

Finally, we constructed our Safer Spaces Policy for STAR meetings and events which can be viewed here.  Let us know if you’re unhappy with anything in the policy and we’ll try to fix it.
