Since 2000, the numbers of refugees and displaced persons have skyrocketed worldwide. These population movements have created vast challenges for the international community, as well as for destination countries and local communities where refugees and displaced persons settle. Effective policies to address the refugee crisis must, therefore, consider three different levels—global, national, and local—and how they interact in practice.
Panelists will discuss the admission and initial integration of refugees and migrants in the United States and Europe, addressing whether and how practices of other countries offer any lessons for the United States. Denis McDonough (MSFS’96), former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, will close the conference with a keynote address.
