Multimedia Reports about Refugees

14.11.2015

By Tom Wendel

What causes people to leave their homeland? What happens to them after their escape? Which challenges are they facing in their new environment? And what are the challenges for cities like Hamburg who are going to house and take care of the flows of refugees?

In the report-project "Zwischen-Welten: Telling the Story of Refugees in Hamburg" Russian and IMC students have jointly found answers to these questions about the refugee situation in Hamburg. "Zwischen-Welten" means "Between worlds" and describes the life between home and abroad. From January to October 2015 more than 45,000 people who fled from their countries were looking for refuge in the Hanseatic city. Over several months, the IMC scholars have researched and developed multimedia reports in cooperation with the Journalism Faculty of the State University of St. Petersburg at the International Media Center at HAW Hamburg in autumn 2015. In the following, all eight projects of the students, which were supervised by Dr. Anna Litvinenko, lecturer at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at SPSU, are presented.
