Thank You for Attending IIHA’s Event – Frontline Doctors: Winter Migrant Crisis

Thank you to those who attended the Institute for International Humanitarian Affairs (IIHA) documentary screening of Frontline Doctors: Winter Migrant Crisis on Tuesday, March 15th.

The IIHA’s Spring Event Series, Challenges & Opportunities: Global Migration in the 21st Century is focused on promoting and hosting events focused on global migration. We hope that you will spread the word about the issues raised and continue the conversations sparked during the event. Ways to learn more and engage with the topic of the ongoing migrant crisis:

  • If you are interested in learning more about Dr. van Tulleken’s experience in the refugee camps, check out his article on our blog.
  • Dr. Lynne Jones, Co-Director of the IIHA Mental Health in Complex Emergencies (MHCE) course, recently volunteered in Calais – one of the camps visited by Dr. van Tulleken – with Help Calais, a crowd funding platform that fund raises to help various projects in the camps. Read more about her experience on our blog.
  • The average stay in a refugee camp is now 17 years. Is it time to rethink how refugee camps are built and managed? Should refugee camps be operated as permanent cities? Check out the Room for Debate on our blog featuring two expert opinions on the future of the refugee camp.

We hope you will join us for our next event featuring Christophe Lobry-Boulanger of the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) on Thursday, March 31st at 12:30 p.m. For more information and to RSVP, please visit the event page.
