In Camps: Vietnamese Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Repatriates

January 21, 2021 at 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The Power, Conflict and Ideas Speaker Series presents Dr. Jana Lipman, associate professor at Tulane University, for her talk, In Camps: Vietnamese Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Repatriates.

After the US war in Vietnam, close to 800,000 Vietnamese left the country by boat, survived and sought refuge throughout Southeast Asia and the Pacific.

In her talk, Dr. Lipman will tell us the story of what happened in the camps raising the key questions all too relevant today – Who is a refugee? Who determines this status? and How does it change over time?
