Current Challenges in Refugee Policy: Kids, Courts, and Refugee Resettlement in Global Perspective
From hardening policies on the border to drastic cuts in refugee resettlement numbers, U.S. policies toward refugees have undergone a sea change in the past year. This conference will examine four key aspects of this changing reality: policies toward refugee and migrant children, the role of religion and religious institutions in forced migration, procedural justice for migrants in U.S. courts, and the particular challenges and future outlook of refugee resettlement agencies.
This conference reflects the work of the Global Refugee and Migration Project, a collaborative 18-month initiative of Georgetown’s Institute for the Study of International Migration and its Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs. Through this initiative, Georgetown faculty and students have carried out research, organized public meetings and research seminars, and disseminated policy recommendations and scholarship to a broad audience. This conference offers an opportunity to reflect on the work accomplished over the course of the initiative, as well as the current state and future directions of global refugee policy.
This event is co-sponsored by Georgetown University's Institute for the Study of International Migration and its Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs. It is part of the Global Refugee and Migration Project, which is generously supported by the Georgetown University Board of Regents.
