The European Migration Crisis
Drivers, Flows, Impacts & Strategies
Reflecting Festival’s theme on migration, the Northern Ireland branch of the Royal Geographic Society (with IBG) has arranged for Dr Rebecca Schaaf FRGSm FHEA, Subject Leader, Geography, Bath Spa University, to deliver a wide ranging talk about immigration.
The talk will explore the complexities of the current migration crisis, including patterns and impacts of movement, motivations for migrating, and the response from various European nations. It will place the European situation within a global context of considerable and increasing population displacement, and will consider the deeper causes and longer term implications.
Drinks reception at 6.45pm
