Before Refugees: Conflict and Crisis
Discussion will identify key issues that license violence, displace entire populations, and force refugees to flee their countries. Moving beyond the feel good story of a youth soccer team learning to assimilate to a new culture, speakers provide a more thorough and thoughtful reflection on conditions of life for refugees from Africa, Central America, and the Middle East. International students at Purdue Calumet have been invited to share their experiences.
