Kurdistan
and Its Illusive Quest for Nationhood

The Rotary Club of Stamford will host Mr. Stuart Gibson, a UNESCO  international arts and cultural advisor as its keynote speaker, Tuesday, April 19th, from 12:15 PM until 1:30 PM at the Stamford Sheraton Hotel, 700 East Main Street, Stamford. The Rotary Club Meeting is open to members, friends of the Club, and the general public at a cost of $20.
 
Stuart Gibson is an international consultant with over 20 years’ experience working with cultural organizations and governments undergoing economic and political transition and post-conflict development. Gibson has worked extensively in the countries of the former Soviet Union, Eastern and Central Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East. He is a UN senior international expert on museum management and organization, cultural policy, and the financing of culture. He is currently Secretary to the International Advisory Board of the State Hermitage Museum (St. Petersburg, Russia), a UNESCO advisor to the Uzbekistan Ministry of Culture and Sport on the development of museums and tourism, and advisor to the Kurdish Regional Government (Iraq) on museums and archaeology.
 
The talk will explore Kurdistan and its quest for independence. The events of the past couple of years have changed the Iraqi landscape possibly forever. These events have simultaneously brought into question many geopolitical assumptions not only about Iraq but the Middle East and beyond. One crucial element in this unfolding drama is the autonomous region of Kurdistan in northern Iraq - its role in combating ISIS, its turbulent relationship with the Baghdad government, its evolving relationship with Iran, Syria, and Turkey, and its longstanding aspirations for independence.
 
Kurdistan, which has been an unflinching ally of the United States for over 20 years, is  a pluralistic society embracing Kurds, Armenians, Turkmen, Yazidis, and Christians.  Its capital, Irbil, is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world dating back to 6,000 BCE.  Despite suffering horribly under the Saddam regime, it nevertheless remained steadfast in its resistance to that repressive rule. Since the end of the first Gulf war it is been unwavering in reclaiming its heritage and cultural identity and erecting a viable political and economic social order as an independent region in Iraq.  Since the emergence of ISIS, it has been transformed into a haven for those persecuted and disowned throughout the region and has also emerged as a key player in confronting the ISIS threat.

Refugee Expert Talks Resettlement with Rotary Clubs in Stamford
Photo by Alex von Kleydorff
 
By PAT TOMLINSON Stamford Times Staff Writer FEB. 5, 2016
 
STAMFORD — The Rotary Clubs of Lower Fairfield County hosted a community conversation Tuesday night to dispell many on the growing misconceptions concerning refugee resettlement in the United States. The event featured an hour-long discussion with Chris George, the executive director of the New Haven-based Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS), which welcomes 230 refugees to Connecticut every year. George, who has spent a majority of his professional life living in, or working with, the Middle East, brought some unique insight into the refugee crisis that is currently making so many headlines across the globe.
 
According to George, fear-mongering and anti-refugee resettlement propaganda can be traced back to a few misconceptions about refugees. For one, George believes that the very definition of what it means to be a refugee is slightly misunderstood. “The international law definition, which is the same definition that the United States uses, is that a refugee is a person who has fled his or her home country because of persecution. It’s persecution that distinguishes a refugee from that much larger category of immigrants or migrants,” said George. “A refugee is someone who was forced to run for his or her own life, because of their race, their religion, their nationality, their social group, or even their political opinion.”
 
George implied that by lumping refugees into the larger category of immigrants, a severe injustice is done to these individuals. These are not just individuals who are simply looking for a new environment or better job opportunities — in fact, he says, refugees will often try to “tough it out” in refugee camps, living in what George likens to “limbo,” for four or five years to try and wait out whatever turmoil it is that they are escaping in their home countries.
While many of the 19 million refugees worldwide hold out in the hopes of repatriation, oftentimes the conditions in refugee camps force a majority of them to either integrate into the countries in which they have sought asylum or to try and resettle in another country that will permit them.
 
In the past, George says, the United States had set the standards for refugee resettlement, allowing about 70,000 refugees into its borders every year, which was better than all other nations combined. However, he says, in the midst of the largest refugee crisis since World War II, the U.S. has dropped the ball because of misguided public backlash and the resulting political trends. “We’ve been shouting to anyone who can hear us over the past few months, especially to Washington, to bring more refugees to the United States. We have a vast network in place that can handle much more refugees than we are getting,” said George.
 
To anyone who would argue that the U.S. shouldn’t allow more refugees entry into the country because they could somehow be a security threat, George has a simple answer: you’re wrong. George points to the extensive and intensive two-year vetting process that each refugee must undergo at the hand of the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security in order for the government to determine the veracity of the refugee’s backgrounds. “The United States has the most rigorous screening process in the world. We are not admitting any security threats into the U.S.,” said George.
 
According to George, these investigations leave no stone unturned, and if there are any doubts surrounding a refugee’s accounts then they will not be eligible for resettlement. In fact, the U.S. tends to only select your typical nuclear families for admission — nuclear families that are particularly vulnerable to persecution. Even upon being admitted to the U.S., these refugee families will not suddenly be living on easy-street. Before refugees even get on the plane to come the United States, they must sign a promissory note so as to pay for their own airfare. 
 
Upon arrival, the U.S. government will give refugees a one-time gift of $950 per person and IRIS will have an apartment ready for them in the area furnished with used and donated furniture, but beyond that these families often have to scrimp and save to get by. While agencies like IRIS can help to support families for four or five months, after that it is up to the family to make ends meet. While George paints a fairly bleak picture for resettled refugees, he says that the overwhelming support from states such as Connecticut gives him hope that increasing the amount of refugee resettled by the system in place is possible.
 
“Connecticut has probably been one of the most welcoming states to refugees in the past few months,” said George. “From all around the state… people have stepped forward, not just individuals, but community groups, churches, synagogues, mosques, Rotary Clubs, all have come up and said ‘we want to support refugees.’ ” George said that within a given year, typically only two or three groups would approach him about sponsoring a refugee family. In just the past three months, George says that he’s been contacted by upward of 60. “You hear the government and you hear the fear that a lot of folks have, but these refugees have been vetted extensively and have been given legal documentation. In actuality, these people are probably among the safest coming into our country,” said Jean Meyer, who is spearheading one such community group, an interfaith council in Stamford that is interested in becoming an IRIS co-sponsor for any refugee families looking to relocate to Stamford.

He saw an opportunity to create an organization that could provide critical help to young people through a network of positive coaching support. He graduated with a BA in political Science from Trinity College in Hartford, CT. Clif currently lives in New Canaan, but considers Stamford his home away from home.
Future 5 helps motivated, low-income high school students in Stamford connect to their full potential. 
 
Some of Future Five's accomplishments for 2014-2015 are: 100% high school graduation rate and 92% of graduating seniors are committed to college or career training.  Future 5 has a 25% student membership growth and has logged 580 community service hours completed this past school year.

Rotary Club starts setting up greenhouse at Juneau prison
StoryThumbnail
A simple conversation grew into a greenhouse construction project for the Rotary Club of Juneau, Alaska, USA. During a one-day event at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center in Juneau that helps inmates prepare for life outside of prison, an inmate mentioned to Rotarian Sharon Gaiptman that he hadn’t seen anything growing on the grounds in his seven years there. That sowed the seed: Gaiptman mobilized her fellow Rotarians to build a greenhouse at the facility. “It’ll be a combination of the inmates being able to work here, gain skill in gardening, and then be able to use the produce that they grow here," said Rotarian Wayne Jensen, an architect who is helping with the greenhouse, the club’s major project for this year.
