AMRI Night: (Re)building together

The AMRI Night is an event that is part of the dynamic of the Night of Ideas developed by the French Institutes in French embassies abroad and coordinated by the French Institute in Paris.

AMRI is the association of the Master's degree in International Relations at the Catholic University of Lille. This association was created just one year ago under the impulse of the students of the master. AMRI is composed of several poles, including the culture pole, which is committed to developing numerous projects, including podcasts, magazines and conferences.

Within the framework of the Night of Ideas, this event has been extended and transformed into the "AMRI Night". In keeping with this year's theme: " (re)constructing together", the association called on speakers from different fields, all specialising in migration, security or environmental issues.

To reflect on this theme, a round table is organised around the following issues: How can we rebuild the countries of emigration and how can we integrate immigrants in our countries? What about the status of the new climate refugees? What solidarity in the reception of everyone and what are the stakes?

To answer these questions, various specialists will participate in this debate, alongside our association:

  • Ms. Rima Hassan, President and Founder of the Refugee Camps Observatory
  • Catherine Wihtol de Wenden, Director of Research at the CNRS and professor at Sciences Po Paris. Specialist and author of numerous scientific works on migration issues
  • Mr. Baptiste Amieux, Regional Thematic Manager for Immigration and Border Management at the International Organization for Migration (IOM), a UN agency, and lecturer at the FLSH.

This event takes place in person at the Université Catholique de Lille and also via zoom, thanks to the link available on the various networks.
