Seminar: Eritreans: Migrants or Migrating Refugees? 03/02@SOAS

Hundreds of thousands of Eritreans have fled their once promising nation after a devastating border war with Ethiopia in 1998-2000 and the imposition of a repressive regime…. Where is the line between a “migrant” and a “refugee,” when motives, routes and experience among political refugees, economic migrants and victims of trafficking overlap? These and other questions will be the subject of a slide show and lecture drawing on recent visits to refugee camps and communities in Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt and Israel.

Date: 3 February 2014 Time: 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Venue: Russell Square: College Buildings Room: 4429
