Event Time and Date

Wednesday, February 27 2013, 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

The Internatinoal Relations Organization, the Global Development Organization, and Amnesty International present:

A Panel on International Refugee Advocacy with Prof. Christine Mahoney, Prof. Richard Barnett and Ms. Harriet Kuhr.

Worldwide, over 30 million people have been displaced by violent conflict. The majority are trapped in protracted displacement crises; languishing for decades as endless cycles of violence prohibit them from returning home and resuming normal lives. Confined to camps, the displaced are denied the right to work, to move freely, and importantly to political participation and self-determination. How can we more effectively fight for these rights? How might we better facilitate return, integration or resettlement as durable solutions? Join us for a panel discussion with Harriet Kuhr (International Rescue Committee), Christine Mahoney (Assistant Professor of Politics and Public Policy) and Rich Barnett (Associate Professor of History) on the topic of international refugee advocacy at the level of the U.N. and the European Union, as well as domestic advocacy at the federal, state and local levels related to refugee resettlement in the U.S.

Wed., Feb. 27, 7 p.m., Jefferson Hotel (Hotel C, West Range).
