A Global Crisis: Life in Fragile States and the Effects of Mass Migration
Posted: 8/30/2016 (Local Events)
Every few months, an image makes the rounds on social media that forces us to pay attention. A tiny body washing ashore on a Turkish beach; a dazed Syrian child sitting in an ambulance and covered in dust and blood. These are the images of mass migration, but they are more than just images. They are the reality of the violence and insecurity within countries in turmoil; which are home to 43 percent of the global population.
In the midst of this devastation, numerous international non-profit organizations are working to find solutions. Join GlobalWA along with leaders from AmeriCares, International Rescue Committee and Oxfam America for a panel discussion addressing their roles in this crisis and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
Time: 3:00-4:30 PM
