In the Libori Summer School Maria von Welser, a former TV-journalist and now a successful publicist, will present the outrageous life-situation of women and children in these countries. Every day another country, following the UN-list.
For her researches Maria von Welser also traveled into Turkey, the Lebanon, to Jordan and on the Greek island of Lesbos. Where she found women and children in a devasting situation. Being refugees between the borders. After a horrible escape from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, they are now living in camps where there is no way back or forwards for them. Because Europe closed its borders. The most men went first, sitting now in camps, for example in Germany, waiting to be granted asylum.
The participants of these seminars will not only find out a lot about the political backgrounds, but hear as well the stories of refugee-women, children, their families and the situation they are confronted with. This seminar should give you a picture of the life-situation, many women and children are still today forced to live in.
