We are pleased to announce the date for a very special Annual General Meeting (AGM) as HVG is 20 years old this year. Our Guest Speaker is Don Flynn, Director of Migrants' Rights Network. We hope that you can join us for an evening of stimulating discussion. Our theme this year is 'Migrant detention - How do we avoid becoming the 'nasty country'?'
Don Flynn leads Migrants' Rights Network’s strategic development and coordinates the policy and project work. He also chairs the UK Race and Europe Network (UKREN) and the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM). He is a regular and sought-after speaker at conferences, seminars and lectures, and we are delighted that he can join us here in Portsmouth.
