New publication by Katharina Lenner – Alternative Voices on the Syrian Refugee Crisis in Jordan – An Interview Collection

Alternative Voices on the Syrian Refugee Crisis in Jordan – An Interview Collection. Edited by Bashar Al-Khatib and Katharina Lenner for RLS. Ramallah: RLS, Nov. 2015.

This book (available in English & Arabic) engages with some of the most common tropes of the discussion on Syrian refugees in Jordan, which tend to portray them as negative and burdensome, and offers alternative perspectives. It does so by letting a number of Jordanian and Syrian voices that are personally and / or professionally connected with the Syrian and other refugee crises in Jordan take centre stage.
