Migrating to Europe: facts, figures and stories
- Wednesday 14 December 2016
- Academy Building
2311 GJ Leiden
- Klein Auditorium
The current migration flow to Europe – and more specifically the one to the Netherlands – is an infinite source for moral discussions as well as political spinning. But what are the facts concerning migration? What are the rights of refugees entering Europe and the Netherlands? What protocols must they follow when applying for asylum? What is the true number of migrants and what impact does their presence have on Dutch society?
During this discussion night, an academic viewpoint on the current migration flow will meet the personal experience of refugees. Peter Rodrigues will give an introduction to migration law, Joanne van der Leun will present statistics pertaining to the immigration of recent years. After these presentations, the presented data will be discussed with three refugees (Ayman Abou Kanon, Khaled Al Shareef and Nour Fattouh) and the public.
As a refugee or citizen, join us and have your say!
For this night Studium Generale is collaborating with The Mobile Educator.
