The global refugee crisis has reached epic proportions. The international community has fallen short in creating an immediate and sustainable response to accommodate millions of forcibly displaced people fleeing war, political instability, and increasingly climate change-induced forces. To tackle such global phenomenon we need to understand the historical and contemporary dynamics of global forced migration. Speakers will expand on these and the policies that will impact the realities of millions of people on the move around the world.
This event emerged from a report from the Haas Institute, titled “Moving Targets: an analysis of forced global migration”
