Speaking after becoming the first person to benefit from an asylum seeker university programme and graduate in Comparative European and International legal studies, Joy Ehikioya said “this is a story of violence, of ancestral superstitions, and still more violence.

It is also a story of involuntary emigration, something close to deportation. And, in the end, the story of reclaiming one’s own name: reclaimed, re-learned”.
Ehikioya’s bravery and determination enabled her to leave Nigeria, where she was abducted and raped as an albino and used in a ‘magic’ rite, and get into the University of Trento’s pioneering asylum seekers’ programme.
The northern university offers the course entirely in English.
