The Bhutanese Community in Syracuse: Reflections on the 10th
Anniversary of Resettlement
On Tuesday, April 17, the South Asia Center is fortunate to host a discussion with: Hari Adhikari, Jay Subedi, and Sajan Nepal. In March 2008, the first
Bhutanese Nepali individual, Hari Adhikari, arrived in Syracuse. Adhikari was an influential figure in the
refugee camps in Nepal and quickly became a leader in the Syracuse
community. He has worked relentlessly to
empower younger members of the community, which resulted in the formation of
the Bhutanese Community in Syracuse (BCS), a non-profit organization. In this presentation, Subedi and Nepal, both
members of BCS, will reflect on the challenges they have faced and what they
hope for the future.
This lecture will take place in 341 Eggers Hall at 4 pm. Please join us!
