We are living in troubling times, but what does it mean to stay with the trouble, to work through the trouble, to participate with it – even to redeem it?
The William Temple Foundation has pulled together six conversations with those who have fought through a trouble for themselves, often in the face of personal upheaval or challenge.
Anna Rowlands is St Hilda Associate Professor of Catholic Social Thought and Practice at Durham University and author of the report “For Our Welfare and Not for our harm” for the Jesuit Refugee Service. Here, she indicates troubles associated with forced migration and asylum-seeking.
