Your Call: Refugees and the right to move

Oct 17, 2016

 

On the Oct 17th edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with University of Hawaii Geography Professor Reece Jones about his new book Violent Borders: Refugees and the Right to Move.

Over the past decade, 40,000 people died trying to cross international borders. Reece argues these deaths are not exceptional; they’re the result of state attempts to contain the population and control access to resources. Email your questions and comments about the refugee crisis to feedback@yourcallradio and join the conversation live at 10am with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest:

Reece Jones, Associate Professor of Geography at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, and author of Violent Borders: Refugees and the Right to Move

Upcoming events:

Monday, October 17, 7pm at The Green Arcade in SF

Tuesday, October 18, 7:30pm at  PEGASUS BOOKS DOWNTOWN in Berkeley

Wednesday, Oct 19, 3:40pm at UC Berkeley
