With an increasing flow of migrants into Europe, tensions are running high as European leaders are divided on how to respond to one of the largest migrant crises. While split on policy approaches to emerging migration trends, the European Union (EU) faces a further divide as member states rush to impose their own individual border controls to limit the flow of migrants. Amid these disputes, the rising popularity of nationalist political parties are increasing these tensions.
This panel will bring together top experts from the EU Delegation to Canada, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), University of Toronto and University of Guelph to discuss the changing political atmosphere in Europe, and the differing views on migration. How will the rise in popularity of nationalist parties impact response to migration? Can EU member states respond effectively as a cohesive entity? How are these expanding measures affecting migrants?
When: August 17th, 2016. 5:30pm – 8pm.
Where: East Common Room, Hart House, University of Toronto
