Graham Liddell was an intern with Lighthouse Relief, an NGO that assists asylum seekers in Greece. He worked in Ritsona refugee camp where he led activities in the Youth Engagement Space, and he worked with Lighthouse’s Emergency Response Team on the island of Lesbos, where he used his Persian language skills to translate for refugees arriving from Afghanistan. He is currently helping to edit the Ritsona Kingdom Journal, a collection of creative writing and art produced by Ritsona residents.The internship functioned as preliminary fieldwork for his doctoral research on refugee narratives. Graham comments: “It was an invaluable learning experience that will inform my dissertation in the years to come, and also gave me an up-close look at the inner workings of NGO’s and international organizations, enriching my academic work and potentially expanding my career prospects.”
