There are currently 22.5 million refugees world wide and yet their stories seem to often be
forgotten. Where are people going? Why are they going? Are their international human rights
being respected? The stories, experiences, and rights of refugees and migrants need to be
respected, heard and understood. In our current geopolitical climate, this is an issue that not
only deserves our attention more than ever, but also our sincere interest and concern. Please
join us to delve deeper into the polemic issue of refugee and migrant rights across the globe
and to hear from a variety of interdisciplinary and personal perspectives.
