Official URL:


This talk will explore the complexity of the current migration crisis, including patterns and impacts of movement, motivations for migrating, and the response from various European nations. It considers how the crisis has become entangled with the UK’s contested relationship with the EU, and questions the limited sense of empathy and global citizenship displayed by wealthier nations. It also places the European situation within a global context of considerable and increasing population displacement, thereby highlighting the deeper causes and longer term implications. Talk given in conjunction with Belfast International Arts Festival, 'migration' being one of this year's Festival themes.
