Panel discussion: “The Afghan Humanitarian Crisis” (virtual)
September 30, 2021 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Media coverage of America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan has largely ignored the massive displacement of communities fleeing Taliban rule. Tens of thousands of refugees are expected to reach the US in the next few weeks, and half a million more are predicted to flee the country by the end of the year. After decades of investment, the international community remains unequipped to address the current crisis. How can the United States mobilize its diplomatic and economic resources to provide both immediate and long-term safety for those fleeing violence? Join the Alexander Hamilton Society for a panel discussion featuring the President and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, Krish Vignarajah, and Duke professor and religious scholar, Abdullah Antepli.
