What is the difference between immigrants and refugees, both subsets of migrants? This talk will explore these differences, which have important ethical and practical implications for contemporary Europe as it contends with an unprecedented flow of immigrants. It will explore national and supranational public policy implications when these terms are blurred inadvertently or deliberately and provide a clearer understanding of the contexts of Europe’s migration crisis. It is presented by Niklaus Steiner, the director of the Center for Global Initiatives at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
