    HKS Dinner Series



    Come discuss the pressing issues around global migration with the HKS community. Speakers Selma El Obeid and Henry Shah will launch an intimate conversation on how the HKS community can better understand the stakes and contribute to a society that is better prepared to deal with populations in difficult situations.



    Selma El Obeid (HKS, '15) was born and spent most of her youth in Sudan, graduating from the University of Khartoum.  Following degrees in Agricultural Development from AgroParisTech and in Comparative Politics and Practices of Development from the University of Paris 1, Selma worked for 18 years in Africa. In 2015, Selma obtained a MPA from Harvard Kennedy School. A Co-Founder member of Espoir d'ici et d'ailleurs, an association providing administrative and orientation assistance to Sudanese refugees in France, she also works as an interpreter for asylum seekers from Sudan, Eritrea and Chad at the Office Français de Protection des Réfugiés et Apatrides.


    Henry Shah (Harvard College, '17) is a master's student in anthropology at the École Normale Supérieure and the École des hautes études en sciences sociales. His ethnographic project explores the daily circuits of young Roma migrants living in slums around Paris. The project explores the ambiguous ways in which these young people "integrate" into French society amidst a set of policies that are both compassionate and repressive.
