A lunchtime discussion featuring Mirte Postema, Fellow for Human Rights, Criminal Justice and Prison Reform in the Americas at the Stanford Human Rights Center.
Forced displacement has affected millions of people for decades, and the number of people fleeing conflict, generalized violence, political persecution and human rights violations is only increasing. In 2015, over a million people–most of whom came from Syria and Afghanistan–entered Europe, in search of safety, security and opportunities.
On Tuesday, February 2nd, Mirte will discuss the legal and ethical obligations that European countries, as well as the rest of the world, have towards refugees.
Lunch will be served at 11:45am. All are welcome!
