Join us for an education session with Alexandra Lieben, the Deputy Director of the UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations on Wednesday, May 25 from 6-7PM in Bunche Hall, Room 3157. We will address the influx of refugees into Europe and how the European Union is currently coping with this issue. We will then discuss the best methods to approach the cultural clash in the region. Olives who recently traveled to the region, or will travel there soon, saw (or will see) the real consequences of this crisis, whether in Turkey or Jordan. Since the refugee crisis effects both the Turkey-Armenia and Israel-Palestine branches of OTI, we highly encourage Olives from all branches to attend this discussion!
