Student Reflections on Refugees and Responsibility

In June 2017, Georgetown University students attended the Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network (JUHAN) 2017 Conference with support from the Berkley Center. The conference theme, "Principles in Crisis: Refugees and Responsibility," referenced the moral and ethical frameworks, as well as guiding principles, that motivate and channel the global response to human suffering. In these blogs students reflect on their experiences at the conference and what they've learned about compassion, solidarity, and action for refugee and migrant populations.
