Our second talk live from Dutch Design Week explores how design can help refugees

Design's role in the ongoing refugee crisis is the focus of our next Good Design for a Bad World talk, which is the second in a five-part series we're streaming live from Dutch Design Week.

Dutch Design Week international ambassador Marcus Fairs hosts the discussion, which questions how design, architecture and urbanism could make life easier for refugees and host communities.

The livestream has now ended, but you can watch the panel discussion in full above or on Dezeen's Facebook page.

He is joined by former refugee camp manager and humanitarian consultant Kilian Kleinschmidt to discuss how the urban design of refugee camps could be improved. Also on the panel are architecture historian Michelle Provoost and critic Rene Boer, who will examine whether design can stem the tide of population movements.

Dezeen is hosting five panel discussions as part of the Good Design for a Bad World initiative. The talks are free to attend, and are taking place at the People's Pavilion at KetelHuisplein 1, in the Strijp-S district of Eindhoven.

Our final talk of the day explores the theme of terrorism within the context of urban design, and is taking place at 4pm CEST.
