The true story of asylum today

How often do you hear the voices of asylum seekers or refugees? Immigration and asylum are the biggest political issues in the UK today but individuals who have been through the process are never heard in the debate. Nobody knows the reality of the situation better.

Refugee Radio Times is packed full of personal stories written by people who have sought refuge in the UK: people who have survived the worst that the world can throw at them and are now speaking out about those experiences.

This book shares the voices of those who have battled torture and trauma in their journey to the UK, as well as those who are still on the road in the makeshift camps of Calais. It includes people who have just arrived, as well as those who have lived her for generations. Featuring Turkish Kurdish, Burmese, Afghan, Cameroonian, Iranian and Sudanese writers alongside UK journalists, the book covers everything from identity, religion and persecution through to detention, mental-health and resilience. It is an essential read for anyone who wants to learn the true story of asylum today.
