Connexions Calendar

Herr Lecture Series: Alex Neve

March 18, 2018

The world is facing its biggest refugee crisis in almost 70 years. Most attention has focused on Syria, but there are similar stories elsewhere, from Central Americans crossing through Mexico to Eritreans held hostage by gangs in the Sinai Peninsula. While there has been a renewed commitment to refugee protection in Canada over the past year, most global governments are fixated on how to keep refugees out. Alex Neve, Secretary General of Amnesty International Canada, will explore just how broken the global refugee system has become and what needs to be done to turn this mounting human rights crisis around.

Alex Neve is the Secretary General of Amnesty International Canada.

Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Venue: Lacombe Memorial Centre, Burman University
