Who Do We Think We Are?

Beyond the Headlines

Who do we think we are? Beyond the Headlines dissects the major global news stories about migration today. It is produced and presented by Ala Sirriyeh and Michaela Benson, sociologists at Lancaster University. The series offers expert analysis of how migration is reported, what might be going on beyond the headlines, and how this might offer alternative understandings to those circulating most prominently. Each episode is worked up in interview form, and brings Ala and Michaela into conversation with scholars; policy researchers; campaigners and representatives of CSOs.
