Panelist: Dr. Linda Rabben
Happy Hour from 5:00 - 7:00 PM at The Mayflower Hotel Edgar Restaurant (back room), 1127 Connecticut Avenue NW Meeting from 7:00 - 9:00 PM at Sumner School: corner of 17th St and M St NW, Washington, DC Linda Rabben is an author, human rights activist and associate research professor of anthropology at the University of Maryland. She did field research in Brazil over a 25-year period and worked for Amnesty International, the Rainforest Foundation, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, and other NGOs on human rights, migration, environmental and international development issues. Since the late 1990s she has published eight books about human rights, including Fierce Legion of Friends: A History of Human Rights Campaigns and Campaigners. Her new book, Sanctuary and Asylum: A Social and Political History, was published by University of Washington Press in September 2016.

Visiting Scholar/ Migration Activist Linda Rabben, University of Maryland
On Wednesday 16th March, Linda Rabben gave a talk to the Migration Research Network and colleagues from local charitable organisations about migration and asylum in the United States. Linda is a scholar, organiser, and activist based in the Maryland area, and her talk offered a brief history of asylum and refuge matters in the last few decades. 20160316_104210 She outlined the pitiably limited support available to people seeking asylum, and how this had been systematically reduced over the years; and how the Obama administration's pledge to support Syrian refuges may be well-intentioned, but was already mired in political and administrative difficulties. There was, as ever, grounds for hope. Linda talked about the power of community activism to support refugees and migrants, including an initiative in her own town to resettle a set number of forced migrants. She also, in response to popular demand, offered her reflections on the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump; her feeling was that while he may never have enough broad appeal to come to office, the far-right political rhetoric he was using and exploiting still presented a threat to the quality of American civic life, and deserved an appropriately robust liberal response. We thanked Linda for her talk, and we're glad that she had time for questions and discussion with interested colleagues. Linda Rabben's talk was organised by Dr Tim Herrick, with support of the Sheffield Migration Research Network.
