Seeking Asylum: Life After Iraq

Issue No. 2113

Since the war on Iraq began in 2003, nearly five million Iraqis have been displaced from their homes.

Two million have been forced to leave Iraq.

What happens to them afterwards is largely ignored by the mainstream media and politicians.

Award-winning photojournalist Angela Catlin and Human Rights journalist Billy Briggs visited Syria to document the lives of refugees, as well as speaking to Iraqi refugees in Scotland.

The exhibition is part of Refugee Week in Scotland.
