Event - Identity: Where is Home?


Saturday 25th June 2016

1pm to 6pm, London School of Economics, Room 104, New Academic Building, 54 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London WC2A 3LJ

The Ethiopian Association of Students & Youth in the UK (EASYUK) has organised a free event - Identity: Where is Home? - at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

The aim of the event is to highlight the issues that first and second generation Ethiopians / Eritreans living in the United Kingdom face in relation to their experience to identity and sense of self. In particular, how upbringing has an impact on sense of self, kinship and definition of home, what can be defined as home, and try to answer innocent questions like: 'Where are you really from?'

Further more the discussions will also try to cover intergenerational gaps and conflicts concerning tradition, family values, gender roles, and relationships outside the community.

Other activities will include:

Everyone is welcome: Ethiopians / Eritreans / Friends of Ethiopia / Friends of Eritrea. The event is free but places are limited, so registration is required on Eventbrite.
