Event description
Join an interactive discussion about the affects of borders on health and human rights and the case for open borders.

About this Event

Across the world, the walls are rising. From the Calais border fence to detention islands in Greece to the militarisation of the US-Mexico border, governments are spending billions to keep migrants out.

Borders are increasing inequality, curtailing people’s human rights to home and are destructive to human health. It is the less wealthy that are affected the most while the rich have free movement - how can we justify giving rights to some but not others? And what if the best way to reduce global inequality is to give people the right to move?

Join an interactive discussion about the affects of borders on health and human rights and the case for open borders.

Hear from These Walls Must Fall, Global Justice Now and health and migration campaigners.

Explore the arguments in an open and non-judgemental way, and learn about ways to support migrant rights today!

Full descriptions of speakers will be released soon.
