A Drexel (Global Passport Series) GPS: Enter the World event.

Following the elections in the United States, the "Brexit" in Britain, and nationalistic governments in Russia, India, Turkey and elsewhere, violent attacks against populations perceived as the “other” are on the rise. Here in the United States, Muslims, Sikhs and Jews are being targeted specifically for their religious beliefs. We invite you to a panel discussion on the “Rise of Global Extremism and the Rights of Religious Minorities” at Drexel University with Simran Jeet Singh, PhD, Sangay Mishra, PhD, and Debjani Bhattacharyya, PhD.

RSVP to Jacqueline Rios, jsr62@drexel.edu.
