In Part 2 of Course Correction’s special series on refugees and forcibly displaced people, we look at the risks of bodily harm facing refugees around the world and what it takes to heal them.

On this episode of our season chronicling the refugee experience, we’re focusing on bodily harm. What kinds of injuries do displaced people suffer, and what does it take to tend to those injuries—not just the ones that can be seen, but the invisible ones that might take longer to heal? This episode features a firsthand account from an internally displaced Afghan dealing with a long-term foot injury.

These numbers are the highest they have ever been. For season three of Course Correction, Doha Debates is partnering with UNHCR, the United Nations refugee agency, to illuminate all aspects of the refugee experience. Over the course of six episodes, host Nelufar Hedayat will speak with refugees and other forcibly displaced persons and hear their stories—from the moment they leave their homes to their eventual resettlement or return, detailing arduous journeys that can sometimes last years or even decades. We’ll examine the challenges that stateless people face, the work being done to assist them, and the ways in which the global community can provide further support and solutions.  See All Episodes
