Migrants and Migration Post Brexit: Finding our voice to influence the new landscape

IRis is delighted to host at the University of Birmingham an event on migration and migrants post Brexit organised by Migrant Voice. The event will take place on October 24th  from 09.30am – 3.30pm.

Following the surge in hate crimes against migrants after the EU referendum vote and the new developments and challenges facing the UK, this event will go to the heart of these issues and explore ways forward. It will bring together migrant communities with experts on migration, equality, academics, the media and other stakeholders to take action.

The keynote speech will be delivered by Nando Sigona, Senior Lecturer and Deputy Director of IRiS, School of Social Policy, University of Birmingham.

The expert panel to inspire us to take action and guide us through the challenges and opportunities of the new landscape are Joy Warmington, CEO of BRAP; Don Flynn, Director of Migrants Rights Network; Kenneth Rodney, CEO at Centre for Equality and Diversity; and Sabir Zazai, Centre Director at Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre.

As spaces are limited, registration is required. Please anne@migrantvoice.org to reserve a place.
