Interview with Professor Martina Feilzer, Bangor University

Professor Martina Feilzer from Bangor University discusses her research on civil society organisations’ support for refugees and migrants in a number of European countries, and how this led to an unexpected focus on the experiences of the Roma community. This research will equip civil society organisations with knowledge and evidence, and the ability to engage with policymakers about their communities.
