Currents of Change: Migration, Transit and Outcomes in the Mediterranean

Join the Duke University Libraries Department of International and Area Studies, the Rubenstein Library's Human Rights Archive and the Forum for Scholars and Publics for a dialogue and critical examination of the history of recent immigration in the Mediterranean and its impact on individual, local, and global migration politics, policy, and culture.

Our key guest will be Malta-based Darrin Zammit Lupi, an internationally respected and award-winning photojournalist and humanitarian who has been participating in and documenting sea migration in the Mediterranean region for over ten years.

Zammit Lupi will be joined by Niels Frenzen, faculty at USC Gould School of Law and an advocate since the 1980s both for migrants crossing the Caribbean and the Mediterranean, and Holly Ackerman, Duke Librarian and scholar on sea migration.


Co-sponsored by the the Department of International and Area Studies, Human Rights Archive, Forum for Scholars and Publics, Duke Human Rights Center @ FHI, and the Kenan Institute for Ethics Refugee Project.
