Panel on refugee issues to include UWindsor representation

An event marking local observance of World Refugee Day will feature a panel discussion along with the premiere of a Windsor-produced film documenting the experiences of young refugees.

The film, entitled Through Their Eyes: Stories of Refugee Youth, brings to the forefront the often-overlooked experiences of young refugees living in our community, says panelist Erwin Selimos, a doctoral student of sociology.
