An exercise to raise awareness about the reality of a life in exile experienced by refugees around the world

The objective of this simulation exercise is to foster empathy towards refugees. In many Western countries, public opinion is increasingly hostile to refugees. We hope that the simulation exercise will serve a tool that allows non-refugees to better understand what refugees go through, to then become more welcoming and be in greater solidarity with them.
