Submitted by admin on Tue, 06/04/2019 - 20:30

Just an eve prior to the big Muslim holiday, Ramazan Bayram, on the 3rd of June 2019, the Book Publishing students from the Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communication of Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski gave us a strong dose of faith in Good – with the premier of their own new book “Beyond borders” in Peroto Bookstore and Cafeteria. “Beyond borders” is a story of barriers between people, those same barriers that we build ourselves. It is not just information about migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers, it represents their own stories, the tales that they had shared voluntarily.

All the process related to the publishing, have been executed and completed successdully by the students of FJMC with the guidance of their Director of Studies Georgi Alexandrov. “Beyond borders” gathered fates of migratnts, currently inhabiting Bulgaria, as well as government and NGO workers who support them in their integration and adaption.

On its pages you will meet in person people from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, and all their perspectives, opinions, narratives and confessions. One of them is Linda Awanis – our Chairperson.

Their couldn`t have been a happier way to greet this holiday.
