the lecture

Over the past two years, Patrick Kingsley has visited over 20 countries in his capacity as the Guardian's first-ever migration correspondent. He has interviewed smugglers, refugees, coastguards, and border-guards; spent weeks onboard rescue missions in the Mediterranean; walked with migrants through the Balkans; and visited refugee camps across the Middle East, Europe and Africa. In the process Kingsley gained a unique perspective on migration to and through Europe – and on 26 October will present some of the lessons he has learnt from this experience.
