Seeking Refuge: The Canadian Experience
February 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This event is part of UBC Global Lounge’s week-long programming for International Development Week 2020: Reimagining Systems:
Global refugee crises have resulted in the need to fine-tune policies that can enhance the experience of those who we welcome in our countries. Canada has welcomed 28,000 refugees in 2018. While we see a lot of statistics, refugee lives belong to individuals with unique experiences of seeking refuge, settling and building new lives in the host countries.
In this panel, we will learn from researchers and explore the unique experiences of refugees in Canada and especially from the UBC community.
Join us for this interactive panel featuring our student co-hosts UBC International Relations Students Association – IRSA, TMA UBC, & UBC Turkish Student Association.
Tuesday, February 4th
6-8 pm at the UBC Global Lounge
