Narrative approach to refugee experience (Master thesis)

Ραμιώτη, Αικατερίνη

The study focuses on the narrations of six refugees (two Afghans, one Palestinian, one Syrian and one couple from Syria), who, one year after their arrival to Greece, as active participants and main narrators of their stories, give meaning and position themselves to their life experiences, recount fleeing from their countries of origin and express their expectations and dreams for the future. From the narrative analysis of the five semi- structured interviews, the following themes emerged: the shared feeling of being in a liminal space, where a common construction of a new “hybrid” identity occurs, consisting of past and present elements in order for refugees to cope with and adapt to the current circumstances, the need to disclaim the negative connotations associated with their religious beliefs, the importance of the notion of family, as a factor of security and self-definition, but also, the role of biographical narrative in education as a tool for breaking stereotypes and prejudices.
