Nujeen mystery - Why did Nujeen want to travel to Germany?

Nujeen mystery - Why did Nujeen want to travel to Germany?

This resource makes use of Nujeen Mustafa's book 'Nujeen'. Nujeen is a Syrian refugee who fled Syria and travelled through 9 countries to reach Germany, all in a wheelchair! It highlights the push and pull factors of migration and the conditions and experiences that migrants go through. It also highlights the consequences of migration on the individual, families and countries. The resource is aimed at A level geography students but can be adapted by reducing the number of statements and pitching the statements at different age groups.
