Valuing the stories of young refugees
In summer 2009, the Ombudsman for Children’s Office brought together 35 young people seeking asylum in Ireland after leaving their home countries because of war, discrimination, poverty or fear as part of a research project.
We supported them to bring their stories to life through a story book, based on interviews and writing workshops with the young people accompanied by audio recordings. We also published a guide book to Dublin and Irish society, compiled by the young people themselves, for other people in their situation.
