Lecture: Seeking Refuge in a Time of Pandemic
Start Date: 6/30/2020

Event Description:

The COVID-19 pandemic has obviously and profoundly changed everyday life for people in Canada and in other countries around the world. It has also had serious effects on those who do not have a country to call their own. Even before the onset of the pandemic, millions of refugees and other displaced persons existed in precarious and even life-threatening situations.

This lecture, led by associate professor Christopher Anderson, will review some of the ways in which the pandemic has rendered their lives even more insecure, and look at how people and states have responded, with a primary focus on Canada.

The link to the lecture page will go live at noon on June 30 here.

This pre-recorded lecture is part of Lifelong Learning at Home, a weekly series of free lectures and recommended resources from some well-known Laurier faculty and community experts. Browse the current lecture topics and learn something new at home:
