Launch of the Lived Zaatari Documentary Project

The Lived Zaatari Documentary Project aims at shedding an ethnographic light on, and improving, the lived experiences of school-aged Syrian refugee children in the Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan.

This is a postgraduate student initiative that seeks to reveal the stories of school children living in the Zaatari refugee camp in a way that is meaningful and that resonates, both for those children living in Zaatari and for those outside Zaatari looking in, hoping to make a difference.

This project is supported by the University of Edinburgh Sociology Department and is part of the 50 year celebration of Sociology at Edinburgh. It is also supported by the United Nations Association Edinburgh (UNAE). For more information on the project please visit the website, or contact Arek Dakessian or Katherine Baxter.
