Refugees and Global Migration – Global Chatter
July 18, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Our partners at The World Affairs Council are hosting their second Global Chatter event. Based on the largest discussion program on world affairs, Great Decisions. Hosted and prepared each year by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA), serves as the focal text for discussion groups across the country. Global Chatter, our local speaker event provides background information and policy options for the most critical issues facing America each year.
Today, no countries have open borders. Every state in today’s global system has its own laws and policies about who is permitted to cross its borders, and how they will do so. Who determines whether someone is a refugee or a migrant? How have different countries, including the United States, reacted to migration? How effective are the international laws, policies, and organizations that have evolved to assist and protect refugees and migrants?
Event is free, but RSVPs are requested here.
