Carlow Rohingya Resettlement Programme

This research report, on behalf of the County Carlow Development Board, aims to provide a systematic assessment and evaluation of the Carlow Rohingya Resettlement Programme. Data was collected to explore the opinions and inputs of relevant stakeholders in the area in order to provide useful feedback about the effectiveness and value of the project. It aims to qualitatively document the key learning from the programme, to highlight areas of success and achievement and to indicate areas in need of greater attention. In addition, it aims to assess the current level of need of the Rohingya community and to make recommendations for the future development of the Resettlement Programme based on the main findings of the research. It is intended that this document act as the first comprehensive account of all of the initiatives that took place in the first year of the Carlow Rohingya Resettlement Programme as well as contextualising the project within the most recent and relevant social framework.

A Life on Hold

Omar's story Part I: A Life on Hold

When war broke out in Libya last year, thousands of refugees from countries including Somalia, Sudan, and Eritrea were forced to flee for their lives.  Filmmakers Nick Francis and Marc Silver travelled with Amnesty International to a refugee camp in Tunisia where they met Omar, a Somali teenager. After fleeing Mogadishu and surviving an attack in Libya, he is waiting to be resettled in the Choucha refugee camp in Tunisia.
