The waves of refugees recently flooding into Europe from the Middle East and North Africa pose enormous challenges—humanitarian on the one hand, and legal-political on the other. How do societies care for, and assimilate the largest number of migrants since the end of World War II? How do government agencies maintain order and yet provide welfare and social services to tens of thousands of impoverished strangers? How do economies absorb so many new laborers who compete for both skilled and unskilled jobs? Experts drawn from Washington-area academe, NGOs, and government agencies will discuss the immigrant crisis and efforts to address it.

 

Speakers will include Jeffrey Anderson (Georgetown University), Alice Bullard (IRA-USA), Randa Serhan (American University)

 

Light refreshments and beverages will accompany the event.
