Borderless presents

BORDERLESS would like to invite you to our upcoming panel discussion titled

Lost in Transition: Human Trafficking and Migrations in Myanmar

 

Millions of Burmese civilians fall through the cracks as Myanmar slowly puts its conflict-ridden past behind it and moves into political and economic reforms. Whether they are displaced by violence or persecution, or are attracted to employment opportunities abroad, Burmese migrants face dangerous conditions and human rights abuses as they are trafficked around the region or work in exploitative environments. BORDERLESS presents three speakers who will shine light on this massive population upheaval that is overlooked by the world.

Speakers:
- Dr. Antonela Arhin, Executive Officer of Center for Diaspora and Transnational Studies, University of Toronto
- Dr. Nora Rowley, Human Rights Physician specializing in Rohingya
- Dr. Stephen Campbell, Post-Doctoral Fellow, Trent University

Moderator:
- Emile Dirks, PhD student in Political Science, University of Toronto

BORDERLESS is a grassroots, non-partisan, non-profit organization which uses creative means of expression to draw attention to, educate, and raise funds for, often overlooked refugee crises around the world by bringing together people of various backgrounds.

Our objective is to raise awareness about overlooked refugee crises using creative means. Our goal is to raise funds. Our long term vision is to be able to deliver funds, raised by BORDERLESS and other student clubs, societies, and organizations, to regions with great numbers of refugees that do not receive sufficient aid.

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required.For further information, please contact Borderless
