Europe's Refugee 'Crisis': where are we now?


Six years after the beginning of Europe’s so called ‘refugee’ or ‘migration’ crisis, we ask what has happened since and (how) has Europe changed? This event will explore Europe’s ‘refugee’ or ‘migration’ crisis, asking whether Europe has changed since, and what happened to the people who arrived and the policies that governed their arrival.
