Kitchener Public Library
Tuesday, Mar 15, 2016 at 7:00 PM EDT
The University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Arts and Kitchener Public Library present a panel discussion featuring scholars from three fields who will share insights on current and past refugee issues.
From Canada’s history of refugee reception, to refugees currently in limbo abroad, to local settlement challenges and opportunities, the discussion will cover topics that affect us all in a globalized world. This event will include Q&A and information about ways to support local refugee initiatives.
The panel will be moderated by Douglas Peers, Dean, Faculty of Arts, and professor of history.
