Event description

Description

Talk of Donald Trump’s plans for a border wall with Mexico and the ongoing debate about Europe’s Schengen Agreement are symbolic of a wider, often heated, global discussion about borders, immigration and cultural change. Nationalism and identity politics are on the rise once more. Thousands of miles of fences and barriers have been erected since the turn of the century which have redefined our political landscape. Tim Marshall brings his own trademark engaging and relatable style to examine the divisions caused by wealth, race, religion and politics.
