RUCSR(RUC Supports Refugees), a group of students and staff encouraging debates and activities, tries to help asylum seekers to get into the high education system during their waiting time.
RUC refugee students have the same experience that asylum seekers are not allowed to do anything, work or study as normal citizens. “But it is easy to see that how positive it is that people can study or being with something to do.” said Jagna, one of the founder of the RUCSR.
Jagna, a German student whose major is Global Study in RUC, accepting the interview by New Times, said that there would be two impacts of the RUCSR. “ One is for the people who get into the study, like refugees or asylum seekers. They can get a lot of recognition and they can simply follow their life before they get the positive. They can have a better prospect and integration. The other is for students, for those who study global study and politics. We need to meet people who are part of this global world. So it is also a very interesting experience to get more information of people with different backgrounds. We can open our eyes for new perspectives.”
