Common Threads

Common Threads

By Michelle D'Arcy
Each episode tells the story of a meeting between an Irish person and a refugee or person seeking asylum. They are paired because they have something in common. They have a conversation to try to discover what it is. Can they find the common threads running through both their lives?

Hosted by Dr. Michelle D'Arcy, assistant professor of Political Science at Trinity College Dublin and funded by TCD's Equality Fund. The Assistant Producer is Eman Abboud and graphic design is by Clara Chan.
