Our second Meet a Migrant session took place on Wednesday 17 February in Birmingham. The focus was on the UK's asylum process, looking at the key issues refugees and asylum seekers living in Birmingham face. 

The event was very well-attended with 11 asylum seekers (from countries including Eritrea, Gambia, India, Nigeria, Syria, Uganda, and Zimbabwe) and journalists from BBC WM 95.6, BBC Inside Out West Midlands, Channel 4 News and Sky News attending. 

Meet a Migrant is a new project we launched last year, where we host informal meetings between migrants and journalists to discuss topical issues, raise awareness in the media about the most pressing issues affecting all different types of migrants, and get more authentic migrant voices into the media. You can see more about our launch event here.

Keep an eye out for a more detailed briefing on this event, coming soon!
