We are pleased to invite you to the lecture by Nira Yuval-Davis, the director of the Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging at theUniversity of East London, the author of a number of books on identities, citizenship, or nationalism. In her lecture, the author will also address highly relevant topics such as migration, loss of confidence in governments on the part of their citizens, or the increasing inclination to identify with imaginary defensive communities. The event is organized in connection with Ai Weiwei’s Law of the Journey installation that also deals with the topic of migration and human rights.
The lecture takes place in the Big Hall and will be in English.
