LIDC Research Seminar: Unauthorized Immigrants living in Europe and the United States.
January 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
Location: Meeting Room, London International Development Centre, 20 Bloomsbury Square, London, WC1A 2NS.
In our January 2020 Research Seminar, we’ll be hearing from two experts from the world-renowned Pew Research Center. Based in Washington, D.C. the Pew Research Center provides information on social issues, public opinion, and demographic trends shaping the United States and the world.
The LIDC Research Seminar Series provides a platform for researchers to share their research and engage in dialogue with an audience of researchers, students, NGOs, think tanks and the broader civil society. Their visit follows the LIDC debate we held late last year on Global Migration.
