Ahmad’s story

Dramatisation based on interviews collected for the research project ‘Undocumented children and families in the UK’ carried out at the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS), University of Oxford. The research was funded by the Barrow Cadbury Trust. The final report No way out, no way in: Irregular migrant children and families in the UK by Nando Sigona and Vanessa Hughes (2012) is available here.

The video was produced by Bleeding Heart Films and Ice & Fire. Credits at the end of the film.

    I think this is a very powerful illustration of the complexity of lived experiences of migration, which defy the neat division into categories of ‘refugee’ and ‘migrant worker’. The reasons for Ahmad’s move to Britain encompass both, and yet because of UK immigration law he fits the legal status for neither. I’m teaching a session with social work students at Durham next week and will show them this video in the session.
