II Round Table: Refugees and the Migration Crisis in Europe

Thursday, November 5, 2015
12:00 AM
Educational Conference Center, 1840 SSWB, 1080 S. University Ave.

As the leading campus resource on global affairs, the International Institute has established the II Round Table as a vehicle to promote informed discussions on contemporary issues and events that affect our world.

 

Refugees and the Migration Crisis in Europe:

What economic and political forces have driven waves of refugees from their homelands in recent months? What fate awaits them on new shores? How do these new migrations challenge our understanding of citizenship and nation? This roundtable goes beyond the media images that represent the refugee crisis–from Fortress Europe to Mama Merkel–to ask probing questions about new patterns of human migration emerging globally. This event will be livestreamed beginning at 3:00pm on November 5. The link will be available at: ii.umich.edu
