WEBINAR

A lecture by Pascal Brice, Director-General of the French Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons at  the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago followed by a Q&A session moderated by Kara Ross Camarena, a Postdoctoral Scholar at Harris Public Policy and affiliated with The Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts.  

Pascal Brice has served as the Director-General of OFPRA (French Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons) since December 2012. He is overseeing OFPRA at a time when asylum claims are rising in France and tensions are growing in Europe over the issue. In response to this pressure, OFPRA is expanding its presence in France, Europe, the Near East, and Africa. Under Mr. Brice’s direction, OFPRA is modernizing and scaling up its operations; over the past few years, its workforce has doubled to more than 800 officials.

Organized and sponsored by: The France Chicago Center at the University of Chicago, The Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflict, The Cultural Services at the Consulate General of France in Chicago, The Univeristy of Chicago School of Social Service Administration, The University of Chicago Law School International Programs and International Human Rights Clinic, and The Pozen Family Center for Human Rights.

BROADCASTED LIVE IN 10 MIDWEST CITIES: Chicago, Elmhurst, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Kirksville, Detroit, Urbana-Champaign, Bloomington, Lexington and Cincinnati.
