The International Studies Institute presents Dr. Moa Lonning for the third of its 2018 Fall Lecture Series, "Migration Stories". Dr. Lonning's talk is titled, “Fragmented Journeys: Young Afghans on the Move in/to Europe” 

Afghan young people are a group known for undertaking long and arduous overland journeys. They represent the largest group of unaccompanied minor asylum-seekers arriving in Europe. This presentation is based on Dr. Lonning's study of Afghan young people on the move. It is multi-sited and multi-method and focuses on young Afghans in Norway and Greece. Her research looks at the experiences of the journeys and how these are affected by social relations and age.
