Event Details

Every year thousands of people risk their lives through dangerous journeys in search of safety, stability and a better future. Yet migrants and refugees often face stigmatisation and discrimination in Europe. In the UK ‘news-hungry’ media often promote stereotypes and myths rather than reasoned debate.

This second event is aimed specifically at A-level students. Two teams of A-level students will debate immigration/migration to the UK and its impacts. Students will also have the opportunity to hear from leading academics about this research, as well as engage in discussions with Southampton students and staff.

Through such activities we wish to debunk myths and inspire young minds to critically debate these issues in an informed way.

Once registered we will contact you for your name, school, and to confirm the number of students you would like to bring. Also applicable A-level subjects these students are taking. Please register by 6 November.

Academic leads: Dr Bindi Shah, Dr Julie Vulnetari
