CIEE Global Lecture Series: Crossing the Line: Public Morality and the Refugee Crisis
About the Lecture Series: The Global Institute Lecture Series: Crossing the Line examines questions of transition and change in contemporary society.
The panel seeks to address concepts surrounding the public and political perceptions of the UK in response to the refugee crisis, and how formerly populist appeals of the 1980s towards helping ‘The Other’ have crossed moral lines in reaction to the current Middle Eastern crises.
