On Tuesday 17 May, the UNHCR’s head of policy development and evaluation services Ewen Macleod is speaking at the University of Glasgow in the Sir Charles Wilson Building (1 University Avenue, Glasgow, G12 8QQ).
The Syria Refugee Situation – sign of a new world disorder?
Ewen has been employed by the United Nations and the European Commission, and over a thirty year career he has worked on many complex humanitarian crises and protracted refugee situations in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
The Glasgow Refugee, Asylum an Migration Network (GRAMNet) and the Glasgow Centre for International Development (GCID) have invited Ewen to speak on the UNHCR’s role in Syria and some of the current and future challenges the refugee outflow has provoked for the international community. He is expected to discuss the broader implications of the Syria crisis for asylum and migration policy, and development and humanitarian aid.
The talk will be followed by a question time before refreshments in the foyer.
Admission free but registration required.
