Watch it Back: Violent Borders Learning Hub webinar: exploring the links between climate and migration
Posted by Deirdre Duff on April 22, 2021 at 03:11 PM
This Learning Hub webinar was based loosely on themes emerging from Reece Jones’ book ‘Violent Borders, Refugees and the Right to Move.
We were joined by some wonderful speakers who drew on their lived and professional experience to examine the links between climate change and migration.
Our speakers included:
- Bulelani Mfaco from Movement of Asylum Seekers in Ireland (MASI) - an independent platform for asylum seekers to join together - seeking justice, freedom and dignity for all asylum seekers.
- Go Dance for Change - a grassroots transcultural collective that shares dance and appreciation for cultural diversity to promote inclusion and action towards social change.
- Myriam Douo - co-author of ‘Lobbying Fortress Europe: The making of a border-industrial complex’ and Economic Justice campaigner for Friends of the Earth Europe.
- Jacob Berkson from Alarm Phone - a hotline for people in distress in the Mediterranean sea.
