Examining Xenophobia: How will the international community protect human rights and promote tolerance?
The international refugee crisis shows no signs of abating, with millions of people displaced by conflicts worldwide. But, high-profit terrorist attacks in Europe have undermined efforts to resettle and integrate refugees and emboldened nationalist politics. In fact, "xenophobia" - fear of the other- was named the 2016 Word of the Year. How will  the international community continue to protect human rights in 2017? What is America's role in the global crisis? Fernando Fernandez-Arias, a Spanish diplomat and current fellow at Harvard's Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, will examine these issues and more. 

When: Thursday, Feb. 23 at 6PM 

Where: UNH Manchester, Room 201, 88 Commercial Street, Manchester

Free & Open to the Public. Advance registration requested at www.wacnh.org,

Presented in partnership with UNH Manchester's homeland security, history, humanities and politics and society programs
