From the Front Lines: The Global Refugee Crisis

Location: Healy Hall Riggs Library Map

For the past several years, the global migrant crisis has dominated international headlines, and journalists have been at the front lines of the issue, documenting the plight of displaced persons and their reception in and impact on their new host countries. Among these journalists are Pulitzer Center grantees Ben Taub, Robin Shulman, and Alice Su, whose work on refugees and migrants has been published by media outlets from around the world, including the New Yorker, NPR, Time and the Washington Post Magazine, Politico, and the Washington Post. Taub's focus on African migrants heading to Europe has shed light on issues of human trafficking in the region, while Shulman and Su have focused on resettlement and the impact of migrants and refugees on host societies in North America and Germany, respectively.

Taub, Shulman, and Su joined Shaun Casey, Berkley Center director and former director of the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Religion and Global Affairs, to discuss how communities worldwide have reacted to the refugee crisis. They analyzed the ethics of resettlement and explored religion's role in refugee integration. 

This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. It was made possible with the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation.
