$15

Gerry Simpson is associate director of Human Rights Watch’s refugee rights program, has researched refugee abuses for the past 10 years in dozens of countries. Join WorldOregon as he shares many of the myriad stories he’s encountered from refugees concerning the heavy price they’ve paid for the rich world’s indifference to their plight, and about how poorer countries such as Cameroon, Kenya, and Pakistan have used that indifference to justify their own mass refugee abuses.
