Refugees and Migration Lecture—UCL

‘Hospitality and hostility: the role of established refugees in a crisis’.
In November Collingham students attended a lunchtime lecture at UCL on the subject of ‘Hospitality and hostility: the role of established refugees in a crisis’. Geographer Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh discussed her four-year project on what she calls refugee-refugee humanitarianism.

A level student Ryo describes how the lecture “challenged the stereotypical view of refugees as helpless, while also exposing the lack of help from the authorities in developing infrastructure in an overcrowded camp in Libya. I was astonished to learn how some large refugee camps become mini cities, with people ‘importing’ goods and setting up their own shops, and providing many of the services we expect in any modern community”.
You can read UCL's write-up of the lecture here.
