Raising the Bar is back for a second round. The University of Auckland is proud to once again host this unique event in which our academics give free public lectures in pubs and bars.

Join Anna Hood for The Global Refugee Crisis: Why Our International System is Part of the Problem.

The world is in the midst of the largest refugee crisis in history. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that there are currently around 65 million people worldwide who have been forcibly displaced from their homes.

This talk will challenge a number of common assumptions about the crisis including what are the causes of it are and how we should address it. It will suggest that not only is our current international system incapable of fixing the crisis, but that it is in fact one of the key reasons we have a crisis in the first place and one of the biggest barriers to resolving it. Join Anna in a confronting discussion that will challenge what you thought you knew.

Registrations essential.
