In our latest episode of On Human Rights we spoke with Sam Fraser, the 2020 recipient of the Martin Alexanderson scholarship. We discussed his research regarding informal Roma settlements in Romania, the circumstances of how they came to be, and the experiences of the people who live within them.
Sam is a recently graduated master student with a degree in international development and management, and the recipient of the 2020 Martin Alexanderson Research Scholarship for Human Rights Studies. With the help of the scholarship he conducted his research titled: We Have Nowhere Else to Go – A Study in Urban Informality Within Roma Settlement in Arad, Romania.
The scholarship is awarded to a researcher who is planning to carry out, or who is carrying out, a study in the field of human rights, preferably in respect of Roma populations or of anti-Semitism, and who is well qualified for the task.
The application deadline is November 23, 2020.
