The road from Damascus

When talking about refugees, the central thrust of right-wing media is that migrants are leaving their countries to seek economic advantage elsewhere. These simplistic headlines play hard into reinforcing far-right or xenophobic tendencies. It glosses over the subtle, complicated and intricate stories that are unique to each displaced human being. So, on this show we look at one of the many inspiring journeys taken by refugees, who want to economically contribute to the countries that welcome them. Host Ross Ashcroft travels to Amsterdam to meet Jay Asad, a Syrian refugee and founder of the Refugee Company.
