Joint event with GRAMNet and weeWONDERBOX. Sarah Craig, Senior Lecturer in Public Law at the University of Glasgow and Co-Convenor for Law at GRAMNet and Amal Azzudin, campaigner, human rights activist and former Glasgow Girl will lead a conversation on: 'Where are we now? Within a 'hostile environment' what scope is there for Scotland to be a place of welcome for refugees and migrants?'
This is the first of a series of monthly Craighead Conversations, open to all, which invite us to reflect on key public issues in Scotland today and to ask: what does this mean for an underatanding of faith and what actions will take us to a more just community? Each conversation will be held in partnership with an organisation active in the topic area and will feature invited speakers who can share knowledge, experience and engagement in bringing about change. Talks will be followed by discussion. Our three sessions in 2016 focus on the theme 'Crossing Boundaries'. Speakers will address an aspect of the way in which society is divided and we will talk about how we can reach out across these divides to build a more just world together.
