How UK Foreign investment creates refugees and Asylum Seekers

Nicholas Hildyard is active in the Ilisu Dam Campaign, and a founding member of The Refugee Project. The Refugee Project is a coalition of refugee communities and concerned organisations that was created to address the role that UK foreign investment has to play in forcing people to flee their countries. He works for The Corner House, a UK NGO that focuses on human rights, the environment and development. He has been active for the past two decades in analysing the political economy of development and globalisation. In recent years, he has focused on the impact of large-scale infrastructure projects on forced migration. He will be joined by a Kurdish refugee singer and musician in exile and a contributor to the book, “Listen to the Refugee’s Story: How UK Foreign Investment Creates Refugees and Asylum Seekers”.
