Every year the Impact Award is presented to renowned researchers or research groups who make a meaningful contribution to society.
In a matter of weeks, COVID-19 has become a global pandemic. In the meantime, millions of people have become infected, and even more have been impacted by the socio-economic measures taken to contain the pandemic. While the virus itself does not discriminate based on age, race, income, or immigration status, these categories still determine who is more likely to get infected, recover or die from the virus, as well as be most impacted by the socio-economic measures taken to contain it.
Today, we listen to the stories of Younes Younes and Halleh Ghorashi. How did they experience the Dutch social and political atmosphere? What role has engaged scholarship played in their lives? And, how can engaged scholarship contribute to addressing issues in regard to the inclusion and exclusion of refugees in society?
