Refugees and Migrants: Paradoxes in the Age of COVID-19
A conversation with Cardinal Michael Czerny, S.J., Under Secretary of the Migrants and Refugees Section of the Holy See’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.
Cardinal Czerny will discuss with Professor Heyer and Fr. Olayo-Mendez his work with Pope Francis on issues surrounding refugees and migration around the world, particularly in the age of COVID-19. What challenges are refugees and migrants currently facing? How can we help to support and accompany migrants and refugees in their areas and to advocate for helpful public and international policy on these issues so that “no one is forgotten?”
