A Study Visit to the Subotica Reception Center

26. May 2023.

As part of the project "We see it this way – Re-framing narratives about migration", students of third year of communication department of the Hungarian Language Teacher Training Faculty in Subotica, visited the Subotica Reception Center.

As part of the study visit, the students had opportunity to talk directly with the employees of the Reception Center, learn about the history of the Commissariat for Refugees and Migration of the RS, get direct insights of how the reception center functions, and had a chance to talk to meet and talk with the beneficiaries themselves.

The purpose of the students' visit was to open new perspectives, encourage dialogue and contribute to a better understanding of the situation on the ground. Most of the students met and talked with migrants/refugees for the first time, as well as with the workers of the Reception Center. The talks left a strong impression on the students, for whom this was also preparation for the next activities of the project.
