Key findings

Youth-Home project explores home-making practices in domestic and urban spaces among young male migrants who live in Cork, Ireland. Using innovative methodology, the project specifically analyses refugees and international students’ experiences together to offer a novel comparative reading into the less explored home among migrant men. The project entails policy analysis, walking interviews, visual methods that enable participants to create a map of Cork city. Participants will eventually produce an app to facilitate transfer of knowledge in urban settings from migrants’ perspective.
