Religion and the Refugee Crisis: Normative Approaches
This curricular module introduces the role of religious communities in refugee resettlement and explores the ethical imperative to aid forced migrants. Rev. David Hollenbach, S.J., charts an ethical and religious framework for action on the global refugee crisis in a 2016 article on “Borders and Duties to the Displaced: Ethical Perspectives on the Refugee Protection System” [PDF]. He provided further reflection on the intersections of religion and refugee resettlement as part of a panel [YouTube] in the November 2019 conference on “Current Challenges in Refugee Policy.” Below, you can explore more resources on normative approaches to religion and the refugee crisis.
