Refugee Studies Reading Group (1)
25 October 2017, 3.00pm - 5.00pm
Bloomsbury Room, G35, Ground Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

The RLI hosts a monthly Refugee Studies Reading Group in London during the academic year. The group is for students interested in refugee law and forced migration studies to discuss important and interesting texts and to build lasting networks and links between them.

Please note that this group is only open to current students as you must be able to access the readings yourself. 
Details for the session are below, and interested students can also join our facebook group.

This first session will focus on: The current state of forced migration.

These readings address broad and contemporary issues around forced migration in the context of globalisation, highlighting the underlying politics and the impact that this has on policies and perceptions in the current state-of-play.

Please ensure that you read the first reading, and it is recommended that you read at least one of the other two.
