All Episodes

In this two-part episode, we explore the living and livelihood options for refugees in Malaysia. In Part 2, we look at the complicated process of acquiring Refugee Status Determination and a UNHCR card, as well as the long, narrow road to resettlement. We examine what education opportunities are available for refugee children in Malaysia. We also look briefly at the grim situation in detention facilities, which is hard to report on due to lack of information and transparency. At the end of the episode, we ask the question: what do we have to gain by denying refugees a right to education and legal employment, and treating them as criminals?Lone Passage is a production of Renegade Radio in collaboration with MalaysiaKini.

In Part 2 of The Journey, we meet James and Sharifah, two refugees from Myanmar who arrived in Malaysia alone when they were minors. James is a Chin refugee who came to Malaysia when he was 15, and Sharifah is a Rohingya refugee who was brought to Malaysia by a smuggler when she was just 5 years old. Both came to Malaysia to escape persecution and violence in Myanmar, and to reunite with their long-lost families. The paths that brought them to Malaysia were unconventional and dangerous.Lone Passage is a production of Renegade Radio in collaboration with MalaysiaKini.
