Conference: A Conversation on the Global Migration Crisis and Human Rights
Friday, October 14, 2016: 8:30am – 4:30pm, in Kane Hall
Using an interactive workshop with a live illustrator and actual stories from immigrants and specialists in the field, this workshop seeks to bring the needs of migrants, government organizations and NGO’s together to make actual policy suggestions surrounding global migration. The workshop is divided into four panels: “Voices of Migrants and Local NGO’s”, “Root Causes of Forced Migration“, “Current Migration to Europe, Canada and the United States”, and “Civil Society and the Governance of Migration: Government and Civil Society Response.” Each session will have moderators and note-takers who help facilitate the large group conversation.
Join us to interact, learn and share your ideas on ways to improve the current migration framework with experts from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Georgetown University, Human Rights Watch, International Rescue Committee, University of Washington, Mercy Corps, University of Victoria and University of Michigan, among others.
We will be live tweeting the event using #UWGlobMig and will have a list of important partners you can tweet to.
This event is free and open to the public – registration required.
