Workshop: Immigration and Refugee Policy in Crisis: Reflections for a New President
February 18, 2017 | 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Immigration and refugee policy has reached a global crisis. More people are compelled to cross borders than ever in our planet’s history. Meanwhile, the role of nations in providing for economic and political refugees is increasingly uncertain. Join us for a day of roundtable dialogue with researchers, community practitioners, and policymakers working on key topics of immigration policy reform and refugee resettlement and services. With opportunities for discussion among leading experts, the event will explore what’s at stake in this time of transition, charting policymaking and research agendas.
Lunch will be provided for registered participants. Please register by February 11, 2017: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9LKBJYH. Free parking will be in available in the underground garage below the FedEx Global Education Center.
