Immigration and refugee policy has reached a global crisis. More people are compelled to cross borders than ever in our planet’s history. Meanwhile, the role of nations in providing for economic and political refugees is increasingly uncertain. Join the Curriculum in Global Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for a day of round table dialogue with researchers, community practitioners and policymakers working on key topics of immigration policy reform and refugee resettlement and services. With opportunities for discussion among leading experts, the event will explore what’s at stake in this time of transition, charting policymaking and research agendas.

Lunch will be provided for registered participants. Please register by Feb. 11. Free parking will be in available in the underground garage below the FedEx Global Education Center.
