Refugee Week's Lecture - Cara: A lifeline to academics at risk
Wed 15 June 2016, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
A public lecture to mark Refugee Week and World Refugee Day
Speaker: Stephen Wordsworth CMG LVO, Executive Director of Cara (the Council for At-Risk Academics)
Cara was founded in 1933 and provides urgent help to academics in immediate danger, to those forced into exile, and to many who choose to stay on to support their institutions and students, despite the serious risks they face.
Ahead of Refugee Week 2016, Stephen Wordsworth will outline Cara’s work and discuss the challenges it faces today. Portsmouth joined the Network of universities that work with Cara in 2014, so come and learn more. There will be an opportunity to ask questions afterwards.
A drinks reception will follow the lecture.
