We’ve a lot to get through this hour, so let’s not mess about. On this episode we are looking at the way data and statistics affect refugees and the way we see them. Aside from some news roundup, involving Messrs. Trump and Dubs, we will be hearing from:
Johanna Olseryd, from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention, on the misleading crime statistics that mask the reality of the “immigrant problem” in Sweden;
Till Krause of Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, on the hidden world of Facebook content moderation, and how it exposes refugees to the worst of what people think of them;
And finally, Enock Kavingwa, data scientist for Refunite, on how information can help people find each other, no matter the distance.
