COPE Socials: The Global Refugee Crisis: The Impact on Europe & Denmark

The Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research (COPE) is continuing its monthly networking events. There will be cheap cocktails at student/disaster-interested-friendly prices, spirited discussions and some COPE-sponsored snacks. For each meeting, we will invite someone to talk for approximately 30 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A. That’s it. Interesting people, cocktails and disaster and humanitarian related discussions.

April’s talk will focus on a defining issue in European politics over the past few years. As governments across Europe and the western world struggle to address the current refugee and migrant crisis, this event will discuss recent developments around the topic and provide commentary on how States can move forward and share responsibility in the management of these issues. 

Andreas Kamm worked for the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) for 38 years, and served as the DRC Secretary General from 1998-2017. He has been a member of the Danish official delegation to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ annual Executive Meetings, the chairman of the Humanitarian Accountability Partnership (HAP) in Geneva, chairman of ECRE, the European Council on Refugees and Exiles, and chairman of the Council of Human Rights (under Institute for Human Rights). With his extensive knowledge on the topic, Andreas will be discussing the global refugee and migrant crisis and the ongoing impacts both in Denmark and throughout Europe.
