Dec 8 The Syria Refugee Crisis: What to Do?

Tuesday, December 812:45-2:00 p.m., Wilkins Room 215

Dean Eric Schwartz will speak on U.S. policy towards Syrian refugees. Syria is in crisis, with half of its population forcibly displaced, including more than four million refugees in neighboring countries, and hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees in Europe. Meanwhile, more than half of the governors in the United States have said they do not want the United States to admit the 10,000 Syrian refugees to which the Obama administration has committed. Dean Schwartz, who testified on this issue before the Senate Homeland Security Committee on November 19, will discuss options for U.S. policy. All are welcome, refreshments will be served. The Freeman Center for International Economic Policy sponsors the Global Policy Seminar/Workshop series.
