Littoral Space 1.1: Discussing Direct Provision with Rosie Howlett Southgate

Episode 1 available through:

Littoral Space is a podcast that explores social, cultural, and environmental topics using a geographical lens. In this episode I discuss Ireland’s Direct Provision system with Rosie Howlett Southgate. Rosie is a PhD researcher and Teaching assistant in the Department of Geography, UCC, whose work explores the lives of Irish asylum seekers and refugees. We talk about the realities of life in direct provision camps, the impacts it has on the individuals and families in the system, and the actions local communities are talking to help them.
