On Wednesday, December 21, Refugees Deeply will host our first live talk, in which we go behind the scenes of our investigation “The Manufacture of Hatred: Scapegoating Refugees in Central Europe” and discuss the connection between propaganda, xenophobia and migration in Central Europe and beyond.

Adrian Edwards, head of news and media at UNHCR, Marta Pardavi, cochair of the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, and Aron Demeter, spokesperson of Amnesty International, Hungary will join the author of the story, Refugees Deeply’s senior editor Daniel Howden, to discuss the story and its broader implications.
