OCTOBER 13, 2015 - Refugees and Immigration: Beyond Borders and Walls

The Human Rights Research and Education Centre and the School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies invite you to the roundtable:

Refugees and Immigration: Beyond Borders and Walls

In the wake of the Syrian refugee crisis, this roundtable aims to encourage a critical discussion, from a multidisciplinary perspective, about refugees, immigration and the circulation of people in a so-called time of “globalization”. In so doing, we not only call for urgent attention to the immediate crisis, but we appeal to scholars, politicians, civil society actors and the public at large to examine the situation beyond the crisis and think about long-term solutions for our societies to become more inclusive, peaceful and just.

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

This event will be presented in English and French.
