Peace Boat

The Living Together project has caught the attention of Peace Boat: a Nobel Peace Prize nominated organisation committed to raising awareness of human rights, peace and sustainable development! I am thrilled to say that Peace Boat has invited me to deliver a series of lectures on topics closely related to the project as part of their 102nd global voyage. I will be joining a segment of the voyage between Montreal, Canada and Greenock, Scotland 17-29 October to discuss Brexit and migration to the UK/Scotland with over 1,000 international passengers on the ship. I am honoured, very excited and cannot wait to board the ship!

List of lectures:

  1. Free movement in the European Union: East-West migration
  2. Brexit (focus: UK society, EU citizens in the UK & British citizens in the EU)
  3. Distinctiveness of Scotland in the context of Brexit
  4. ‘Migrants matter to cities’: Polish migrants in the East End of Glasgow

I will also deliver a small workshop How EU migrants in the UK feel about Brexit?  to explore stories of EU citizens in the UK/Scotland and the impacts of Brexit on their lives and futures.
