The family Yousef arrived in Europe in the fall of 2015. There is father Zaid and mother Hanan and they have three children of their own, the boys Karim and Nabil and one daughter Farah. Meriam, their niece of 18 years, has joined the family on their escape from their hometown Aleppo. Meriam lost her parents in the siege of the city and Zaid and Hanan took her into their home. Read how the Yousef’s and other migrants from other parts of the world, are doing in Luxembourg and how they deal with cultural differences.
Every society develops its own habits and set of rules allowing people to live together harmoniously. These habits are being influenced by the environment that people live in, through time and people from all corners of the world. How do we define these social dilemmas?
During their resettlement migrants face numerous instances where cultural differences emerge. Normal, day-to-day situations can turn out to be pleasant encounters, but also startling or even mind boggling. And this is not only true for the newcomer. The Connect2Us foundations helps recognize, understand and accept cultural differences. We will then also see how similar we really are.
