Placing the testimony of refugees front and centre, journalist Sally Hayden's book reveals an appalling level of abuse, corruption and cruelty, tacitly sanctioned by European policy, following the negligence of NGOs and corruption within the United Nations to the EU’s bankrolling of Libyan militias, the trials of people smugglers and the frustrations of aid workers. Winner of the Orwell Prize for Political Writing 2022.
Sally Hayden is in conversation with Faversham-based Marg Mayne, former CEO of Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) and former director at the British Council.
A donation from this event will be made to the Faversham and Villages Refugee Solidarity Group.
