Great Decisions Discussion Group: Refugees and Global Migration
Wednesday, January 16, 2019
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Radmacher Meeting Room
This group meets monthly to discuss a topic of current affairs. In January, we focus on refugees and global migration.
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?
