DDD Conference

Asylum Seekers from Darfur & Eritrea – Experiences in Israel and in Uganda

Convener: Dr. Maya Lavie Ajayi, BGU

The first part of the presentation will discuss findings – quantitative and qualitative – on the experience of Darfuri asylum seekers throughout their journey and in Israel, including pre-migration exposure to traumatic experiences, PTSD, cultural shock, and attempts to cope and be integrated in the society. The second part of the presentation will present the use of art to understand the refugee’s past and present experiences. Finally, we will present the plight of children raised in Israel, deported to South Sudan, and being educated in Uganda, via findings from a qualitative study with their teachers – thus, we will present a broad picture of minors’ and adult asylum seekers’ experiences using mixed-methods research.
