“The Current State of Refugees and Forced Displacement in the World”


Date & Time: 
Oct 6 2017 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Windham World Affairs Council (WWAC) and Centre Congregational Church will jointly sponsor a talk by Mr. Lloyd Dakin, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (Ret.), entitled “The Current State of Refugees and Forced Displacement in the World. The talk is free and open to the public. In his talk Mr. Dakin will focus on the current state of refugees and forced displacement in the world. From his extensive experience, he has learned that not all refugee situations are the same, but ultimately their resolutions are very similar. Refugees either return home, stay in the country they fled to, or seek resettlement in another country. He will give us his perspective on on how these processes are progressing globally and locally at this moment in time. The talk will be preceded by a pasta supper at 6 pm sponsored as a fundraiser by the church. Suggested donation $10.
