Anglo-Somali Society

The Anglo-Somali Society is a not-for-profit international friendship society whose objective is to foster friendship and understanding between the Somali and English-speaking worlds, by developing cultural and social relations between them. This evening will feature a discussion with Dr Joanna Lewis, Associate Professor in International History at LSE who has specialised in the history of encounters between Britain and Africa since the 19C. Currently, Joanna is working at LSE on a research project funded by the Institute of Global Affairs to investigate how refugees forced to flee from conflict, from 1990, survived the trauma of dislocation, rebuilt or remade new lives in London, and then turned their attention to helping the homeland. This evening, she will be talking about this in a lively discussion with the audience.
