Dr. Simon McMahon will give a keynote, reviewing the latest developments concerning the refugee crisis in the UK. His talk will specifically focus on the politics around the crisis.

The keynote will be followed by an open discussion involving Dr Nando Sigona and Dr Vicki Squire who will also join us via skype and share their unique perspectives rooted in the fields of sociology, identity politics and citizenship studies.

The event aims to provide a platform for participants and scholars from various background to discuss numerous political and security challenges and opportunities posed by the refugee crisis facing different European countries. The event will help participants analyse close-up a number of controversial issues on the subject matter.

Audiences are welcomed to participate actively in the event through Twitter by using the tag #BathCPME.

The event will be held in 1 West Room 2.103.
