INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION: The Local Connections
World Affairs Council Inland Southern California, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, and Glocally Connected invite you to participate in the 2016 Great Decisions Discussion Series topic
International Immigration with
Speakers: Selin Yildiz Nielsen & Sherry MacKay directors Glocally Connected and an Interview of Afghani Immigrants in our community
As a record number of migrants cross the Mediterranean Sea to find asylum in Europe, the continent is struggling to come up with an adequate response. Although Europe’s refugees are largely fleeing conflicts in Syria, Iraq and parts of Africa, their struggle is hardly unique. Today, with the number of displaced people at an all-time high, a number of world powers find themselves facing a difficult question of how to respond. As political leaders in America and Europe struggle to meet the Syrian migration crisis, it has become a hot topic in the US presidential campaign. We will learn about and discuss the issues around migration and our policy options.
For the those in the discussion series, please read Great Decisions 2016 briefing #4 before the session.
