Abstract

With the arrival of the refugees from the Middle East, especially since 2015, Europe has become a xenophobic hotbed. Discourses, practices, and policies promoting and supporting xenophobia have become reality. In this article, we seek to present stories of those who have arrived to Europea via the Balkan Route, in a qualitative research fashion, concentrating on several narratives collected by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees [UNHCR] personnel via interviews of refugees within the Balkans. The article further stresses the intersectional nature of discrimination, as well as a narrative analysis way in combating it.
