Series: Reversing the Gaze: African(ist) Perspectives onto Europe,

Panel II: Civil Society/ Human Rights

Moderator: Vanessa Lovelace, WGS

The European “Migrant Crisis” has received significant media and academic attention since 2015 when over one million refugees arrived in Europe. During the same period, thousands of people died attempting to cross both the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Sea. These tumultuous events have largely been viewed from the perspective of Europe.  In this series, we want to “reverse our gaze” and provide a view of Europe from Africa with the help of Brandeis faculty experts, graduate students at the Heller school, and others by focusing on three key areas: Migration; Civil Society and Human Rights; and Political Economy/Trade/Cooperation/Climate Change.
