Rachel Ingal is interested in learning more about refugee and migrant populations all over the world. This summer, Ingal spent time in Valencia, Spain on an Experiencing The World fellowship working with refugees and getting a deeper look at how they integrate into other communities. Additionally, in the future she would like to focus in on the education and economic empowerment of refugee women as well as women in general.
Ingal works with faculty member Ilaria Schnyder on her project with the Humanitarian Corridor in Italy. She helps transcribe interviews and research the immigration and refugee systems, focusing on how Catholic host families are able to help refugees integrate into society. Ingal also compiles research for comparative analysis on refugee systems in the EU and the United States.
“Refugees Welcome: How Public Opinion and the Political Environment in Spain Affect the Resettlement and Integration of Refugees”
Jul 19, 2019
I have been working a lot with Valencia Acoge, the refugee organization with which I am in contact. I have gotten to know the refugee women I am working with well, and slowly more and more people are being added to our group. I have also loved being able to get to know the workers and their stories in this field.
