Migration: The state of asylum Migration: The state of asylum – Tortoise

Tortoise ThinkIn – Migration: The state of asylum

Thursday 7 February 2019

Duration: 7:00PM – 8:15PM

16-19 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DY

Status: Completed

Worldwide the vast majority of asylum seekers come from failed and dangerous states to which they cannot return. Yet in many countries their status is a political football and their fates are determined by a process that requires them to prove first that they are not economic migrants. Britain is a case in point: internment pending verdict, no right to work and only a third of initial applications approved. What happened to common humanity?

What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

Drinks from 6.30pm, starts promptly at 7pm. 

Please note, latecomers won’t be admitted

ThinkIn tickets are included in all Tortoise memberships. There is no additional price to pay to attend a ThinkIn for members.

Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership. Until Wednesday February 6 2019 only, non-members can enter the code SNOWYAY to book two complimentary tickets to any ThinkIn.
