Speaker: Daniel Davies, Community Outreach Legal Officer, St. Andrew’s Refugee Services

Three durable solutions are supposed to be available to refugees: voluntary repatriation; integration into the host community; and resettlement to a safe third country. With conflicts dragging on and with reduced Western appetite for resettlement, the eye turns to the possibility of local integration. In this presentation, Daniel Davies will discuss the situation of African refugees in Egypt and the myopic strategies that fail them.

Daniel Davies is the Community Outreach Legal Officer at St. Andrew’s Refugee Services in Cairo, Egypt. He received a B.A. from Vassar College and a J.D. from Fordham University School of Law in 2014. Daniel received the Leitner Center’s James. E Tolan Human Rights Fellowship and a Fulbright to study Law and Politics of International Security at Vrije Universitiet Amsterdam. Since 2015, he has worked closely with leaders from the Ethiopian, Somali, South Sudanese, Sudanese, and Yemeni refugee communities in and around Cairo, as well as on identifying and referring to UNHCR particularly vulnerable persons in need of resettlement.

Kosher pizza will be served.
