Are refugees’ experiences valuable to the story of India’s road to independence?
2017 is the 70th anniversary of the Partition of India. A time of huge upheaval, leading to the mass migration of over 13 million people. Travelling for hundreds of miles across borders, leaving their homes and most of their belongings behind, refugees were split by religion and resettled in new countries.
To mark the anniversary, we’re bringing together a panel of experts to discuss the impact that refugees have had on the story of the Partition of India. Speakers will have 8-10 minutes to share their views. We will then open up the discussion to the audience.
