Refugee Week: Panel Event – Refuge or detention?

June 21, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

” ‘Refuge or detention? Challenging the hostile reception of asylum seekers and refugees in the UK’

While each asylum seeker and refugee has an individual story, they share the hope to find a place of hospitality rather than hostility. In this panel, former detainees and representatives from the legal, academic and voluntary/third sectors discuss the social injustices faced by many of those in immigration detention, particularly those seeking asylum. Panel members include:

A former detainee from Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre
Patrick Page, Duncan Lewis Solicitors Public Law Department and No Walls Editor
Joanne Vincett, The Open University and Yarl’s Wood Befrienders
Chair: Dr Fidele Mutwarasibo, The Open University and MK Community Foundation
