Linfield students, faculty to share Thailand research

Linfield College faculty and students who conducted summer research in Thailand will share their experiences during “In Limbo” Monday, Oct. 1, at 3 p.m. in Jonasson Hall, lower level of Melrose Hall at Linfield.

The talk will address governing vulnerable displaced populations in Thailand and Burma. Fleeing from political oppression, violence or lack of economic opportunity in neighboring Burma, hundreds of thousands of people have crossed into Thailand, where they live as refugees and victims. Is governance possible for those who have no state or identity?

The event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Department of Political Science, PLACE and the International Programs Office. For more information, call 503-883-2222.
