Malin Thor Tureby and Jesper Johansson contribute to the book launch seminar for We Do What We Can: Volunteers on the Refugee Reception in Sweden From 2015

Upon the release of the book Vi gör vad vi kan. Volontärer om flyktingmottagandet i Sverige från 2015 (We Do What We Can: Volunteers on the Refugee Reception in Sweden from 2015), a special book-launch seminar was held at St Paul’s Church in Stockholm on 13 January 2019. The book was published by the association Liv i Sverige (Life in Sweden) and Migra förlag (Migra publishing house), featuring narratives by 50 volunteers who talk about their involvement in the refugee-reception activities that took place in Sweden in the fall of 2015. Malin Thor Tureby and Jesper Johansson have written the book’s final chapter, on the history of Swedish refugee reception during the 1900s. During the festive seminar, which showcasted musicians from Afghanistan and talks by some of the volunteers themselves, Malin Thor Tureby and Jesper Johansson presented the results of their research on the subject.
