Refugees, in search of a better life

Let's take a moment and ask ourselves, do we really know the real reason that brings people to immigrate? Do we know what people get through after they get to Europe? What are the best policies to protect human lives? What does this cost to European countries? What is our role as citizens of the world?

Join the second release of our podcast starring Margarida Gomes and Tiago Paúl, with our special guest professor Cátia Batista, and find out how immigration changed the way people live in Europe nowadays and how it changed the concept of "abolishmentof border controls" between countries.

Come with us in this vivid discussion about the way Italy, France, and other European countries responded to the migration crisis lived since 2015.

Welcome to the new awareness world, where knowledge and debate are our main sources of entertainment. Will you join us? Listen to the podcast in the link below.
