Room for Refugees - Nasrin

by Gerda Stevenson

Nasrin has been in Glasgow for almost a year while she waits for her interview to determine whether she will be given refugee status and be given leave to stay in the UK. A qualified accountant, she hasn't been allowed to work while her case is being considered. At the interview she will be required to make her case for being classified as a refugee. That means Nasrin will need to re-live and talk about her traumatic experience of religious persecution and fleeing Iran - a country she once loved. 'People Make Glasgow' - so says the marketing slogan; as Nasrin worries about her interview and the people she's left behind in Iran she gets to know Glasgow and some of the 'people' who make the city.
