Iraqi Refugee Crisis - Panel Discussion Feb. 21
The Schell Center for International Human Rights, together with the Council on Middle East Studies at the McMillan Center for International and Area Studies, will host a panel discussion on “The Iraqi Refugee Crisis: The Human Impact/The Human Response” Thursday, February 21, from 6:15 to 8:00 p.m. in Room 129. The event is open to the public and will include a screening of the trailer to the documentary film, “Between Earth & Sky.”
“Between Earth & Sky” explores the human side of the Iraq war, which has produced the world's fastest-growing population of refugees and internally displaced people. Since 2003, some 2.2 million Iraqis have fled their homeland, and another 2 million are displaced within Iraq. The film, scheduled to be released this fall, offers a personal glimpse into the lives of Iraqi people struggling to find stability amidst the relentless chaos.
Panelists will include Omar Fekeiki, journalism student, University of California, Berkeley; Kirk Johnson, Refugee Advocate, The List: Project to Resettle Iraqi Allies; Kalyanee Mam, filmmaker, Iraq Refugee Documentary Project; and Sarnata Reynolds, Refugee Program Director, Amnesty International USA.
