Digital Refuge: Examining Online Refugee Communities in Europe

I help with translating themes within the Facebook datasets from Arabic into English, using a qualitative codebook. I read through refugee questions and concerns, smugglers, government officials and others and classify them then, enter them into the spreadsheet. The goal is to participate in eventually forming a reliable database for refugee to extract accurate information from during their journey through Europe.

Message to Sponsor

I have been working on this project for a whole year and it had been an amazing learning experience for me. I value the opportunity to work on such a project, that aims at making a difference and help refugee access accurate information through their challenging journey. As well as help government officials understand the real challenges those refugees face. Thank you.
