‘Everyday Bordering’: A Film Screening & Discussion chaired by Chi Onwurah



‘Everyday Bordering’: A Film Screening & Discussion chaired by Chi Onwurah 


Northumbria University, City Campus East, Room CCE1-003

Tuesday 29th of March 5.30-8pm.  

The meeting is going to be chaired by Chi Onwurah MP for Newcastle Central and will also have a panel comprised of the following speakers:

Don Flynn - Director, Migrants Rights Network

Clare Hurst - Senior Solicitor, Newcastle Law Centre

Kathryn Cassidy - Senior Lecturer in Human Geography, Northumbria University

Before the panel discussion, we shall show the film ‘Everyday Borders’ which is based on research findings from the EUBorderscapes project and was produced in co-operation with Migrants Rights Network (MRN), Refugee and Migrant Forum for Essex and London (RAMFEL) and Southall Black Sisters (SBS). Some of the experts who took part in the film will also attend the event and take part in the discussion.  

While there have been public debates on some aspects of the 2014 Immigration Act and 2015-16 Immigration BIlls, we believe that the issues raised in the film and discussion have been relatively neglected till now in spite of their major importance to issues of civil liberties and community cohesion.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Dr. Kathryn Cassidy -kathryn.cassidy@northumbria.ac.uk or Klaudia Mierswaklaudia.mierswa@northumbria.ac.uk
