Refugees and Migration: Responding to a Global Humanitarian Crisis
The world is currently facing the largest humanitarian crisis since World War II, with 68 million forcibly displaced persons worldwide, including 25 million refugees. How will we respond?
Join us on Friday, October 19 for an extraordinary day of education, conversation, and inspiration.
This conference features keynote addresses from Gideon Maltz (executive director of the Tent Partnership for Refugees) and Sasha Chanoff (founder of RefugePoint), and panel discussions that provide a global overview of the crisis, an analysis of large-scale attempts to alleviate the crisis, and a conversation about local efforts in our region to make a difference.
This event is free and open to the public, but seats are limited so we ask that you register here before October 11. All who register will receive a free boxed lunch during the conference.
Hosted by Boston College and Peace Islands Institute, with support from the Islamic Civilization and Societies Program, the International Studies Program, the Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies Student Association, and the Global Citizenships Project.
